I had these on my 95 SE.http://www.greendiamondtire.com/productsny1.html#
I loved them.
Awesome in the winter, car wouldn't slide if you wanted it to, but they are actually all season tires.
And the customer service was excellent through the company.
I did have one blow on me and they had a new one to me in less than a week, and I never had to prove I ever even owned the tire to begin with.(it only blew cause it had a slow leak due to a bad rim and I wasn't good about keeping up on it )
I payed just under $400 mounted.

14 times 4 = 56

and trust me, mine are good, my brother has some good truck tires on his jeep last winter, i was able to out handle him and out stop him by a LONG ways

but anyway, the only reason why mine are not as rated as high is because, only tire rack and like 1 or 2 other places sells them. there not a big name brand.

But ANY TRUE snow Tire rated for ice will work WAY batter then any other Truck, off road, or all season tire.
