I just swapped off the Pirelli's for the Blizzaks that came off our old ML. I will say first that they are both very good tires and would run either. The Blizzaks are noticeably quieter and seem to be a bit "grippier" especially on ice and snow. The Pirelli's are a little bit more firm but handle better on dry pavement.

I'd say the Blizzaks are excellent for snow/ice and very good on winter dry pavement, where the Pirelli's are excellent on winter dry pavement and very good on snow/ice.

If road noise is the deciding factor then it would be the Blizzak's imo.
