I haven't seen a snow tire that hasn't been good on dry roads or even wet ones. They will scare the crap out of you for a while until you get used to the side wall flex. They are not exactly designed for performance...

I've have no problems on dry roads. We don't get snow all the time either, but a lot of rain. You just have to remember that with studded tires you're braking distances aren't quite as good as a studdless snow tire or street tire.
