Re: Tires - Saabnet.com Bulletin Board
I recently sold a 2008 9-5 Aero and the owner of an authorized SAAB repair shop where the PPI was done noted my General A003s and said their V shaped tread was not optimal for SAABs. Recommended Continentals or Michelins.
I did notice the Generals were getting noisy as they wore (about 6,000 miles), compared to the Continental Extreme Contact all seasons on my 2006 9-5 Aero which are quiet at 15,000 miles of use. The 08 received a four wheel alignment with the tires.
Noise was not terrible, but I did notice it as time went on. Keep that in mind and go with the Contis.
