LM60 is a performance winter tire, WS70 is a snow tire.

...which is to say the LM series are absolutely no fun on dry pavement but will have the best snow and ice performance. The WS series give up a little in the snow ice department but will be much more tolerable in the dry.

and none of them are best of the breed:
snow tire to have is Michelin X-Ice Xi3 or Nokian Hakkapeliitta R
performance - none of the newest tires are yet available in the USA. Dunlop SP Winter Sport 3D is safe bet for now.
