As to sales and engineering warnings regarding driving conditions - unless GM substantially changed the owners manual - SAAB used go on at length about what to expect and do about ice and snow conditions. Not that I'm ever likely to buy a 9^3/^5 myself - but I would be very interested to know if the manual has changed in that regard. Personally - and again I'm not trying to tick you off or anything here - I put the winters on in the fall and leave them on well into the late spring because one of the other things a good winter tire will do for you (I've had luck with Kumho - although I'm trying DSP's this year) is substantially lower the risks of hydroplaning in heavy rain or skating on mud and/or leaves that get washed onto the road at both ends of the season here. Anyway - sorry you feel group jumped you on this one. Happy motoring none the less. -- Radio Free Dexterdyne Top Tune o'be-do-da-day Thomas Dolby - Hyperactive all tunes - no cookies no subscription no weather no ads no news no phone in no sign up required - all the Time Dexter J's fab SAAB 900 for sale:
