I am running Pirelli Sottozero Serie II performance winter tire non-RFT and the ride is a actually quite good, almost the same feel as my performance summer tires.

I think what the tire adds in noise it gives back in feel since it is not a run-flat tire. The grip and feel is really good although, we haven't had any proper snow but in the wet weather it's been great.

My guess as others have already mentioned is to mess with the air pressure, hopefully it gets the ride feel where you'd like it to be.
