2006 Saab 9-3T
If people don't already know there is not only a winter tire shortage but a shortage of others as well. If you wish to buy winter tires this year. Do I as soon as possible.
I would think that 205/60-16 would be a better fit. That's the size of winter tire I'm running on my 9-5: a bit narrower and taller than the normal 215/55-16. (Also, I needed the winter tires in a darn hurry when my winter beater NG900 stopped running in January, and the 205/60-16 Michelin X-Ice was easily available, unlike the 215/55-16....)A few examples. Coworker wanted sumitomo ice edge in a 215 55 r16. Zero available. Ordered 215 60 r16 only about 60 left In warehouse. Other a customer wanted general grabbers for his truck. unsure what size but it took over a week and had to order them from 4 different places. Town fair tire not only ones affected by this. Running out very quickly.
Sounds pretty bad!Tried that size also but couldn't get them in ice edge either. For his price range even with our discounts it was those or Nexen.
