The best I found on my 94 Bronco XLT was Big O tires. They were their top line studded snow tires made for 4x4. Great tires in the Colorado snow plus they were quiet and smooth riding for a snow tire. There was some noise on the highway, but not crazy noise like you hear from some snow tires.
Had 4 sets and only once had a tire that did not seem to run right, But they replaced it no problem.
You don't get the mileage out of them as you would a normal street tire but the trade off in traction was worth it anyway. In Colorado you can run studded snow tires all year around as I seen it snow in July once at 10,000 Feet.
For many years I ran Good year ultra grip studded snow tires on a 73 T Bird with out a problem. But last time I checked they don't make them any more. Too bad, great snow tire.
