Both my MKC and Mustang GT CS are shod with Michelin X-Ice....not a single complaint to mention, insanely grippy tire in nasty conditions....When I first got the MKC I was surprised at how bad the traction was with the OEM All Season tires...and that's biting on 4 wheel drive.....bought the X Ice and never looked back...
As Todd mentioned, you DID list the top 3 tires out there,I have friends that have the Nokian Hakkapelitta R2's and say very positive reviews on them......The Blizzak is a great tire as well, all feedback I got on them is that the threads die out quite early, loosing grip over snow/ice.

2016 MKC, Reserve. White Platinum Met Tri-coat.
Leather ebony interior.
Climate package
Technology package
2.3L GTDI ecoboost.
6-speed select SHIFT auto trans.
20" premium painted Alum wheels.
Equipment Group 300A.
Silver rust protection.
Xzilon exterior paint protection.
Weather Tech front and rear liners ....the rest is ALL Lincoln.

I'm Running very confidently this winter with Toyo Observe Gsi-5 235/50R-18 - 235/50R18 - H Studless Winter Tires
These are excellent, Winter Season Only Tires on a spare set of rims. Soft rubber compound grips in the Cold temps.
Reasonable price too. Plan to put on the All Season when warms up.
I Change over to stock All Season for the rest of the year.
I tried for half winter before, but not as confident in the winter compared to the above winter tires. Big difference over all Season wheels.
