Winter Tyres for B9 RS5

It’s Winter Tyre Time coming up it looks like and after a trawl for the 5 the options seem to be (I’m on 20’’ rims 275/30):
Michelin Pilot Alpin PA4
Dunlop Winter Sport 3D
Conti Winter Contact TS850P
Pirelli Winter 270 Sottozero Series 2
Hankook W320 Evo 2
Bridgestone Blizzak LM005

Any experience or suggestions? I’m leaning towards the Contis (am on Conti Sport 6 currently although that will be changed to MP4S for summer tyres) or the Michelins but I could be missing out on something better.

I’ve always used Goodyear Ultragrips, and just about to put new ones (Ultragrip Performance Plus) on my winter rims (19”)

Difficult to make a call on the ones your leaning towards, but this is worth a read —> https://www.tyrereviews.co.uk/Tyre-Tests/ :racer:

100% for thinking SAFE: I use Vredestein Wintrac Xtreme on both my TT and RS3 (just brilliant) but Dunlop Winter Sport 3D on my SQ5 though we haven't had sufficient snow yet for me to evaluate 'em.

But the Vredestein Wintrac Xtreme, oh yes, 100% superb - and 8-winters now on the same:
