Driving SL55 AMG with Snow Tires?

I am looking at a SL55 AMG or C4s 996. Has anyone tried to put snow tires on a SL55 AMG? I know these cars have a lot of torque, power etc.. With traction control on can a 2003-2006 SL55 AMG be driven in the snow with snow tires? Im selling my Lotus Elise to find a daily driver. Thanks guys!

Buy an SL and a vw golf or Jetta for the snow. I have yet to see any rear wheel drive car be good in the snow and sometimes traction control only makes it worse.

Mercedes aren't for people who want to have one, it's for people who can have one.
