As you might image, my Saab 900 turbo will eat up tires a little faster than a 900S. However, I haven't experimented with my tires all that much. My first tires were Kelly's ($90 each) and they didn't last at all. They were rated for longer life, but you could have fooled me. I bought General's model XP2000 H4 P195/60 next. They handle real well and are A-semetric for a little more performance. I bought them at Sam's club, of all places, for just about $65 a tire. So far they've worn very slow and even. They're great in the snow and rain. They stick to dry pavement like glue. I'm sure they're a selection of similar or better tires out there, but I'd buy these again. I would stick to the recommended sizes. --- Gary M.
