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

I've been running Nokian Hakkapeliitta R studless snows
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.

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