When it comes time for another set of snow tires, I would seriously
consider getting studded next time around.

Check your local laws.  They were outlawed in Minnesota after doing a few
hundred million dollars of damage to our roads.

Last I knew, they're allowed here (NYS), but need to be put on after "x"
date & taken off by "y" date.  For that reason, I'd prefer avoiding studded

I don't have any recommendations on the specific tires you list, but my
advice would be to go with dedicated snows.  In my opinion, all-seasons
do fine the first winter, but aren't much better than summer tires after

I've been running Nokian Hakkapeliitta R studless snows
(http://www.nokiantires.com/tyre?id 949&group=1.01&name=Nokian%20Hakkapeliitta%20R)on
my '07 touring for the past two winters here in New Jersey and they've
been fantastic.  They even got me home last winter after a surprise
storm hit and dumped two feet before road crews could mobilize.  Even
with the Prius's low clearance, I still plowed my way through, passing,
(but not daring to stop for and help) numerous cars and trucks stuck
every which way.  I did get stuck trying to get up my driveway though,
as the drift came up over the hood.  If I were looking to buy a new set
of snows today, I wouldn't hesitate to buy another set.  My Prius is
like a little tractor in the snow with these on.

Good luck.

Then you've never seen an all-WEATHER tire like the Nokian WR.
