I agree on the generals. Conti makes all levels of performance, but tbh, in terms of spirited driving performance, the contis most recommend here are probably not as performance oriented as gmax series from General. I really liked the gmax as-03.
What I did find with Conti, is that few of their tires in the 225/45R17 format meet the load standard for the 9-5. I get it that they work fine anyway, but that is a minor point.
Definitely got some cupping on the gmax as-03 set. Interesting to hear the as-05 had less. I'd chocked that up to the finicky 9-5 suspension as most tires I've owned have worn primarily on inside edges, cupped, etc... in spite of many efforts wrt shocks, bushings, ride height etc... all those help, but the 9-5 just likes to eat tires to some degree...
