best tires for snow?

I have a 1997 Jeep Grand Cherokee V8 5.2L 4x4. Which tires are going to be the best for use in the mountains and snow?

Can anyone comment on the best (biggest?) size of tires that a stick ZJ can use from this list?

Biggest size tire is around 30.5" on stock suspension. Any winter-specific tire will work fine with the 249 transfer case. Winterforce/Blizzak/Icelander/iPike

Cooper Weathermaster SXT. Take it from someone who drove on snow 6 months of the year in northern Minnesota. My wife had those tires on her 95 Neon. With 2" of glare ice on the road, she was able to drive like she was on a dry road.

Don't get BFG ATs. They are truly horrible in any condition. The tire is an outdated relic that should be banned by Ralph Nader himself.
