I run winterforce here and have had blizzak on a Fiero. Either will be fine. Check out the reviews for those who drive a lot on ice. Around here, we drive on snow/ice 5-6 months a year. World of difference driving a Fiero with winter tires. They will be noisy, compared to standard tires, but I would rather have traction (getting stuck in your own driveway can be annoying). If you drive a lot of dry pavement, they will wear faster. I run winterforce year around on the Aztek and they last about 4-5 years before having to be replaced.
I should add, winterforce is by far the most popular up here... but that is because of the SNOW and ice we get. You may be better with a tire that handles the ice, vs snow. I don't know if winterforce are really ice tires as much as snow. They work great on both, but just saying.
