The Blizzaks in that size are a 92, I think the manual says 93 for winter tires. I don't know if I will take that seriously, though. My previous Saab, a 9000, was a heavier and more powerful car and yet it allowed as low as 89 (maybe even 87, not sure). It's also not too clear what the relationship is between load rating requirement and tire size. For example, the spec for the OEM tires in a 215/55R16 size is 97, meanwhile for 235/35R19 it's 91. So without having a spec for the exact size, it's hard to extrapolate it from other spec sizes. I don't think I'm going too far on a limb to say if 91 is fine for one size, 92 is probably fine for another for the same car.
