Question Recommended tires for winter

winter is coming
(GOT fans might see the pun here haha)
All-season tires are great for daily driving but most of what i've read says it's better to invest on snow tires during the winter season since it give better traction on ice and snow, plus it can withstand cold temperature.

any recommendations for good to buy tires?

I have the Michelin Xi3 and it's a well balanced tire. In snow and ice, very confident. On dry pavement, they almost feel like all-seasons. Rated tread life is superior. Slush and deep snow handling is fair, but that's tough for most any winter tire.

I also found this interesting article from MotoIQ. They got a set of inexpensive Dunlop WinterMaxx tires from TireRack:

The Dunlops don't rate as high as the Michelins, but then again, the don't cost as much.
