snow tires

I used X-ice for the last two winters up here in Finland. Have no complaints, quiet, and well gripping tyre. A bit soft perhaps, that I'm sure has more to do with the high profile, mounted on 15" wheels. I paid 400 euros for a set, so $411 doesn't sound too bad. 
Going to need new tyres for the coming winter, I'll have to look the latest results of the wintertyre test and then make my mind. Before X-ice I had Nokian Q (also studless) and they were OK tyres as well, a bit louder than Michelin, but both choices I can recommend.
