  1. What's the Scoop on Upsizing Tires?

    NG900 & OG9-3 Workshop
    I have a beautiful black on black 1998 SAAB 900 SE Turbo. My tires are just about done. What is the overall wisdom / opinion on the impact of going up a size from 205/50-R16 to 205/55-R16? Although I feel it just looks a little better, I don't want to do something STUPID.

    The tires that were on my car when I bought it are Bridgestone Potenza's. A) They're noisy and B) the previous owner had them inflated to 50psi:nono; so even though they're under a year they're already worn and need to be replaced. The owner's manual didn't come with the car, what is the...
  3. Need some 18" tire advice

    9-5 Performance, Mods & Tuning
    Hey all, I just got a set of 18x8's for my 00 9-5lpt, on sort of a whim. I need some advice on tire size. The 225/40/18's are very close to the same outside diameter as the Aero's stock tires, just a tiny bit smaller. The 235/40/18's are a little bigger, and almost exactly the same diameter...
  4. Anybody have issues upgrading to 18" wheel and wide tires?

    9-5 Workshop
    Has anybody out there upgraded to a size 18"x8" rim with +40 offset and with size 235/40/18 tires? I have my eyes on a set, but am concerned about rubbing and clearance or other issues. Will they fit okay? Ride okay? The look is awesome in this size.

    9000 Workshop
    Hello! I own a Saab 900 with Aero rims (current tire size 205/55/16). I am looking into getting snow tires and am wondering if a 225/60/16 will fit on these rims. Any help would be greatly appreciated! Thanks!
  6. Help me spend some money! Viggen tire size and manufacturer questions

    NG900 & OG9-3 Workshop
    Hi-- I have a stock 2001 Viggen 5dr. The owner's manual specifies 215/45 x 17" tires. I'm thinking of using 215/45 R17 or 225/45 R17 but I don’t know which is the best way to go and wonder if there are other options. What other 17" tire sizes make sense on a moderately driven street car? Which...
  7. Will this size tire work?

    NG900 & OG9-3 Workshop
    Crazy question and I've been through the forums but wanted to know if there was any collective experience. I've just forked out for an additional set of rims for a 1996 900SE Vert with the intention of setting the car up for a Massachusetts winter with long drive up into New Hampshire and...
