Tires and Range

So the Volt comes with un-sticky high-mpg tires. What impact on range might their be to putting on some better tires that might improve feel, handling, and braking? Has anyone tried this yet and gotten any data?

(Sorry if this has been discussed / beaten to death before)

I use Michelin X-Ice snow tires, using about one-tenth more electricity on my daily commute for the gain in safe, sticky traction under the worst winter storm conditions. In the mountains, the passes are often closed during winter storms to all traffic without either chains or snow tires. Winter is defined as September through June, so I will not change tires for summer.
