I can't tell you that i have a good comparison for both tires since i've never owned the Pirellis, but i've been a dedicated blizzak customer for a good while, and won't buy anything else. I guess it's not a fair judgment, but why fix something when it's not broken?

Anyways i vote blizzak. Let us know how the pirellis are if you choose that route. I'm curious to know.

I've had both. Both track well in the snow. The only thing with Blizzaks is that once they wear down one third it's becomes an all-season tire tire as the softer compound wears off. But when the Blizzaks are new they do the job very well without the Pirelli price.
