Definitely... there is no reason why a Saab is any different than any other car on the road, as far as wheels go. I've never heard of "Vulcans," so I'd go so far as to say they're a one-off or discount tire and probably not up to the same high quality that Michelins are. Take your car somewhere else - have them check the alignment, and have them check your ball joints. If your alignment is off, or the balljoints worn, you may be wearing the tires unevenly. -Justin dimanopsamamtdasystems.com wrote: > > Your tire dealer is trying to screw you up.
