We're getting it in Michigan too. I picked the wrong time to take my snow tires off. :'( Anything more than 2 inches and I have trouble getting around in the CTS.

Is it really that bad in the snow?! What kind of all season tires do you have on there?

They're junk Michelin Pilot MXM4 tires. On my way into work we only had 2" of snow and even then I was having a hard time accelerating from a stop. The rear end kept fish tailing. :( If I left traction control on it wouldn't even move from a stop!

Nearly all reviews vote them as bad for snow traction so I'm definitely not alone. I can't wait to have some $$ and upgrade to some more decent tires!
