If you punch in SAAB 900 on michelin's web site they give you a nice list of their recomended mounts. Interestingly apart from 195-60x15 they also list 205-60x15. This is an interesting size upgrade which is worth considering. Avoid fitting 195-65x15! I have them on the back of mine and they rub on the big bumps. Also note that the tire models and ranges can be different in the USA as to Europe, a good example is Goodyear.
