Default Brand new winter tires in snow/ice?

I scored some Blizzak LM-22 for pretty cheap. My wheels arent scheduled to land until Next Thursday, and Im going to get the tires mounted on them the same day.

There is snow/ice forecasted for the saturday after I get my tires on. Will the brand new tires pose an issue? Ive read/been told that theyre too hard/soft/wrong/whatever when new and I should break them in for x miles first.

Don't worry about that. Just drive them. There's a release compound used on the tires so they come out of the mold easy when produced. This just gets worn off through normal driving.
