The Blizzaks weren't enough of an upgrade? What model Blizzak did you use, and what were the all season radials that you're comparing them against? I pretty much see that as either a) the most amazing a/s tires ever, or b) the Blizzaks were as bad as an a/s tire in the snow, which based on my experience (WS-60 and WS-70), can't possibly be true.
If you search the forum, you'll find that the Nokian WRG2 is recommended as a snow tire that can do the other three seasons, and the Primacy MXV4 is probably the best three season tire that can handle some snow. Both are officially listed as "all season" tires. I hear good things about the CS4, as well as Hankook's Optimo H727, but snow and ice? Sorry.....that's Blizzak and X-Ice territory.
