Does anyone have any experience running all season tires on 15'' rims ? My SAAB is a '99 9-5 SE 2.0 LPT. Usually people don't recommend 15'' rims for summer operation. How about 15'' rims with 205/65/15 all season tires ?

Thanks for your input...

I'd run them for "daily driver" use without hesitation. You may find better options for H rated tires if you went with 205-60-15. US market, the 205-65-15 aimed for mid 90's Ford Taurus owners, tended to have S rating and mushy sidewalls

I have 195/65/15 on my old 900 wheels I swap out onto my 9-5. I would actually be using these right now but im too lazy to crawl into our upper garage space to get them :lol:

Thanks guys !

The rims I have are 6.5'' wide (from a 9K). Is there any indication on the tires concerning rim width, or just any 205/60/15 would fit ?
The other question is, are all season tires usually recognised as legal winter tires ?
