Haven't had any snow yet, but cold temps and very wet conditions. Not fun driving on the wet. Have to be very cautious with the throttle, or the little yellow fun light comes on and things slip around.

So far, things were better with the stocks, so I hope when things get below 40 and we get snow, we'll be much bettter off.
I haven't used those tires specifically but those air pressures seem really high. At the risk of stating the obvious, if you overinflate the tire there is less rubber making contact with the road and you will have less traction

How about trying 36psi front / 42psi rear?
