No car "needs" performance tires. That's dictated by your driving habits. Typically it's assumed that buyers of performance models or trim levels would prefer a performance tire. That means better grip but you lose durability, driving comfort, and poor weather traction.

If you want the dealer to swap out the tires, they likely will, but only at your cost. The car is delivered with the spec tires, which in your case, are performance and not all-season.

If I were you and I had the storage room, I'd get a set of steelies and some winter tires. Your other choice is to change out the tires when you buy the car and maybe try to sell your slightly used performance tires.
