I live in Delaware. We just finished digging out of 20+ inches of snow. My current ride is an '07 Freestyle AWD, with OEM tires. Didn't have any issues. That being said, I previously owned an '03 Mercury Marauder, again with OEM tires. The first snow I encountered with it almost ended in disaster. I promptly bought a set of winter tires and rims from TireRack back then. I took that car places the state police couldn't go. I went places with that set up I never thought I would. So, when my new SHO arrives, I'll get a winter tire package for it, no doubt in my mind! It will be worth the cost, if you have the tire package with summer tires, don't drive without'em.

I just got my SHO last week. I live in Canada in Saskatchewan and I have used winter tires for several years. Most recently I had them on my 2008 Taurus Limited AWD.
I ordered winter tires from Tirerack.com. They have 2 makes in the correct size. 245/45/20.
So this last few days is the first time I have driven for a few years without winter tires on. I can't wait to get them on. The OE tires are Michelin and while they do pretty well accelerating the braking and control is obviously much poorer. Also a stat is that summer or allseason tires are hard and loose traction on pavement at around 45 degrees F.

245/45R-20 Pirelli Scorpion Ice & Snow XL $242.00, I took them to a local tire store and had them mounted for a nominal fee.
