It sorta depends on whether that snow came after rain such that the resulting traction could best be described as "zero".
Deeper snow, particularly on really cold pavement is a piece of cake, almost like driving on sand. What stinks is near freezing as you first get freezing rain, then snow on top.
You can't drop to a 17 if you have the bigger brakes, but you can put on a set of 18's and open up your options if you should decide to get premium winter tires to protect your investment in bodywork and liability insurance.
