I drive my 2010 GT through the winter here in Mass, since it is my only car.
A decent set of 4 real snow tires will make a huge difference. In my opinion they do not need to be anything fancy or special, just real snow tires.
A separate set of winnter wheels with snow tires is the way to go. This way you can change them yourself every fall and spring, and you can protect your good OEM wheels from winter corrosion.
I was able to pick up a set of used wheels with snow tires for $500 on Craig's List ; it might be a little more difficult for you because the old 17" wheels will not clear your brakes. But it is definitely worth watching Craig's List for a while ; first you will need to know what wheels will fit your car.
I wonder what happens when snow falls on the hood of a car with hood vents?
