I hear good things about the Nexen tire and not alot about the Hankook one. Mainly good for snow and not ice but would make a good commuter type tire. I personally have Hankook I Pikes from Canadian tire on my 2007 and they haven't let me down yet. $110 ish per and they go on sale all the time as well. If you can find the Nexen, I would try that.
Edit. Looks like Russians really like the Nexen tire as well
