Firestone FTX... not too good

I just got a 94 Ford Probe SE. The dealer replaced the stock tires with new Firestone
FTX tires. I live up in Michigan, and we get a LOT of rain and snow. These are some
of the worst tires that I have ever driven on. They get HORRIBLE traction on any snow,
and hydroplane constantly on water. Even on pavement they are only average, and if I pop
the clutch just a little bit they peel. And I can make them peel for at least 10 seconds.
Just thought anyone who is considering buying these expensive tires to reconsider. Or
maybe it's just because my car is very light.. at least it corners well :)
