Interestingly, driving <60km/h on the street didn't seem to trigger the TC even though the acceleration was greater.
I'm hoping with colder temperatures the problem goes away.
My winter tires do the exact same thing as yours. You just have to take it easy on winter tires. If I do not have snow forecast for a week or so I will put the summer tires/wheels back on.
