We have both. The blizzaks are far superior on icy roads, the winterforce seems to be a bit better in deep snow and seem to be much better in deeper mud (although we don't have much experience in mud). They are both too wide to feel very stable in slush. They are both noisy.

Re: Better traction in snow?

A week ago we had almost 3 ft of snow here in southeastern Ontario. After almost having crashed the Jeep a couple of times due to the crappy Michelins I decided to put these Cooper Weathermaster WSC on. Man, what a difference! I no longer feel afraid of driving the Jeep.
