One member just purchased some Goodyears and got a great deal with rebates.  Here's the topic:

Another great snow tire to consider are the Bridestone Blizzaks.  Are you in a snow belt area?

Blizzacks are great! I have them on my Subaru for the winter months...I don't, however, have a second set of wheels for the Lincoln...so I'm gonna have to stick to an A/S here in MI.

Can you tell difference when swapping the tires out in the Subaru?  I heard that Subarus handle like gold to begin with.

In the past I'd always run A/S tires on Subies and an Audi S4 I had for a season (similar AWD set-ups). Both got around fantastic in the snow...even lowered (4" or less ground clearance). This past winter, however, I had a set of tires fail me...slid for over 30ft on icy level pavement at 25mph when someone locked up their brakes and collided with them nearly totaling my car. After looking up reviews on these alleged A/S's I would never put that tire on any car that would see snow again...they handled great in wet and dry but Yokahama Avid Envigors are possibly the worst tire I've ever ran in that circumstance...I instantly opted for Bridgestone Blizaks and the difference between any A/S tire I had driven on was night and day...cornering improved, comfort and the added peace of mind was a nice addition as well.

Yeah I second Blizzacks, third set now on rear wheel drive cars and the snow does not phase them.

The Blazzacks are the highest rated and garner the best consumer reviews.

How many miles go you get out of them?

So far two seasons on three different cars (only because one was totalled and sold the other) still have the tires on the third for the second season. I racked up some miles on them though they wear pretty reasonable for snows. It helps if you mark it them for ratation for the following season.
