Winter tires: How are Hankook Aurora or Nexen Winguard?

On the lookout for decent winter tires for my 2007 Nissan Altima in Toronto and Walmart quoted me $$80/tire for Nexen Winguard and $94/tire for Hankook Aurora.

Any experience with either of these brands? Are they any good or should I just spend the extra $250 and get the usual General, Goodrich or Goodyear?

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
