If anyone is looking for winter tires, I recommend the Vredestein Wintrac Xtreme tires. Normally winter tires are noisy and not great in warm weather, but we just put some on a CC Coupe and the ride is great. I can't tell any difference from summer tires, although I'm certain they won't handle like summer tires at the limit. The tires are designed by Giugiaro and say this on the sidewall. I put Vredsteins on a Porsche a couple years ago and did not like the ride and noise, but these new ones are great. The other good thing about Vredestein (I'm told by the dealer but haven't otherwise verified) is that they make them year round, where most of the other manufacturers like Pirelli, etc only make winter tires for the season, so if you lose a tire mid/late winter, it's difficult to get replacements.
