Never found out about the Hankooks in snow... that car was sold before it saw any (there was no snow here in the Puget Sound lowlands all winter). We also sold the Outback with the Nokian WRG2s, and sadly replaced it with a Honda Pilot, due to a growing family. The Pilot had some nearly new Goodyear Wranglers I didn't like much... but a pair of them developed some cupping very quickly, so I replaced all four with more WRG2s. The Pilot's ride firmed up immensely with the Nokians and handling feels much improved. I also like the "green" aspects of the Nokian product. I'd still do the same as before, putting the Nokians on newer vehicles and Hankooks on vehicles that make Nokian price harder to justify, but that's just me.
