As many know, General Tires are subsidiary to Continental. I find, in using the Generals, they're of more that sufficient quality and they essentially have the same performance capacity as a similar Continental intended for the same purpose. At a considerably smaller price - and they tend to be made in the USA in the sizes Saabs use.
My sense is, the capabilities of 9-5 from 15 years ago, even in great condition, are only just so impressive and whatever the Continental brings that's "better" than the General, is wasted on the 99-09 9-5. Currently I use the AS-05, and I'm liking it better than the AS-03 because I see less cupping on the inside rears, and they're quieter. I last used the Continentals on an '06 wagon in 2015, and frankly they robbed that vehicle of some handling crispness.
