H&R sport springs + Chicago winters.

OK, so I'm contemplating getting the H&R sport springs but my main concern is what will happen once winter gets here? I have 18" snow tires for the OEM wheels and they were great last year but if I lower it a bit with the springs will I end up plowing school parking lots as a side job?

It really is funny when I drive up to devils head or cascade and I'm the only d-bag on the road still doing 80mph in a blizzard. People think I'm nuts and give me funny looks as I pass them.
