I just went through buying two expensive tires due to one hole in one tire. I went with the Michelin Pilot HX MXM Yup, expensive but Ive had other tires and these are great handling and fairly quiet. Definitely no howling or singing. Found them at Sears for $212 each. better than SAAB $306 each. Also researched the Yokohama A520 for $99. But decided to stay with the Michelin due to already having them and not wanting a mix of tires and Michelins process of making tires keeps the tire from heating up and wearing as fast. see the following link. http://www.tirerack.com -scot 97 900SEt Michael Wright wrote: > My wife has a 96 900 V6 with a set of Falken 205/50 16" tires on it.
