Pitbull rocker radials in the snow?

Researching my next set of tires. Currently running 37x13.5x17 toyo mt's, great tires, but I have one complaint. I drive to Eastern Canada about 6-10 times a year including a couple times during the winter. The toyo's don't do well when it's really cold with snow and ice. I'm wondering if anyone has experience with the pitbulls rocker radials in subzero conditions with snow and ice. It's embarrassing getting passed on the highway by a hyundai accent. Any info about snow/ice performance would be helpful.

No experience with the pit bulls but they look like they would be worthless in packed snow and ice. You need tires with lots of siping for good winter traction.

For snow wheeling (ie deep snow, packed or unpacked at snow wheeling speeds) my 37" PBRs did great and out performed the majority of the common 37" MTs on the same trail runs. Because of our multi year drought here in the West, didn't have much experience of snowy or icy on-road highway speeds.
