Had a flat tire today on my '97 CSE. Of course the puncture was in a corner which really can't be repaired, and the tires are getting kind of old and worn anyway. So looks like time for a new set. I'm just looking for a decent every day tire, I'm not going to be doing any cruising at 100mph+. (The current shoes are Continental "ContiProContact.")
Looking at tire rack dot com, possible candidates for about $70 each or less (before shipping & mounting) look like:
Sumitomo Touring LS H
Kuhmo Solus TA31
General Altimax RT43
Hankook Optimo H246
Anyone have experience with these tires on a 9000? (I'm leaning toward the Generals as I've read good things about them in various places, including here on Saabnet about a year ago.)
