97 SE manual transmission here....orig owner....orig tires (Duelers I think) went about 40K miles...was never impressed with them...went to Mich LTX MS's. The LTX's from day one created annoying steering wheel wobble much of the time...being an avid skier and hiker I went with them figuring I'd trade off some comfort to get better snow/ice/dirt road perforance...ended up unhappy on both fronts. The one big positive was tread life...I still have the LTXs and am about to replace but got right about 100K miles out of them. But again...from pretty much beginning I could get them to spin on a slight uphill in the rain even with limited slip rear. Have been doing research for about a year now on my next set and am going with General Grabbers. Was thinking Goodyear tripletreds but they seem to have a clear rep for very low treadlife. I'm kinda done with Michelin after getting about 20K miles on their Energy tire on the wifes minivan. Good luck and let us know what you decide.
