    Afternoon peoples, Has anyone any info on the best tyre pressure for most efficient mpg. My manual say 40 PSI! I think if I put that in I will need a new spine before more petrol. Currently running Pirelli P Zero Nero 235/45/r18. 9-3 2.8 Aero XWD I think everything is stock suspension, engine...

    Morning all Had a look through the TTID (wagon) manual last night and they give 41PSI pressures 'for best feil efficiency' or 35PSI up to 190KPH, or 'normal' use. Does anyone actually run 41PSI or is that just a number to allow SAAB to be able to claim the high mpg's that in the real world are...

    Hi all from a newbie to the site. I probably have a really silly question. I don't get the handbook when it says the minimum tyre pressure all round should be 33 psi and 41 psi for more fuel economy, even when fully loaded. Trouble is, we often tow a caravan and the manual advises no tyre...

    Hi all Just bought some Kumho Ecsta Sport KU31 for my 1999 9-3 2.0 Turbo The handbook says 32 front and rear for normal loading but that seems quite low Just checking as to what tyre pressures you guys are using Thanks Andy

    Hi- I'm new and have just bought a 2000 9-5. I've put the tyre pressures at 32 PSI but they still don't look particularly firm and 'squash down' a bit. Is this just typical of the car (I had a BMW e36 and the tyres always looked a little flat despite being at the correct inflation) or should I...

    To those of you you have an aftermarket boost gauge what boost are you seeing on your dial and what car/turbo stage of tune if any are you running? I think I have problem with mine as it peaks at 20psi but drops to around 17, now I'm sure I've seen it peak at 25psi in the past. Could this be a...

    Recently changed a 52 reg Audi 3.0 sport convertible for a 9-3 2.0 Aero convertible and really enjoy the sporty drive that the Saab gives. What I didn't like however was the way the rear of the car never seems settled constantly jttering on even smooth roads. So I took some advice I found...

    I have a Yr 2000 2.3 SE Estate, and have been suffering from 'Padding' or 'Stepping Out' with my Michelin's, or so I believe it is called. I'm going to get the boots changed but have a query regarding the tyre pressures, in a bid to try and ascertain what has caused the problem in the first...

    Hello all. I have a 1998 9K 2.0LPT on Speedparts stage 3 with a full JT3" system and no cat. I have recently fitted a boost gauge and want to know what Bar I should be running at in 1,2,3 and fourth gear. She is running a max .5bar in 1st and 2nd and max .75 bar in 3rd and 4th (she will...
  14. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    When should you replace your tyres? At what point do they fail an MOT? I just had a chat with a rather large Tyre customer of mine and he says that as long as a Tyre is more than 1.6mm in the centre and across three quarters of the tyre -even if the outer edges are bald and as long as no...
  15. Classic Saab 9-3/GM900 (1994 - 2002)/Conv ( -2003)
    OK, I've fitted a 20A fuse in fuse slot 15 as described in the manual, but the lights do not come on automatically when the key is in the On position. Why? Secondly, I only have a digital copy of the manual, so I can't see the back page to check the correct tyre pressures, can anyone advise...
  16. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    I've got the 192bhp upgrade and 17 inch wheels with 225/45 R17 94W tyres. The question is does anyone know the correct pressure for these tyres? I've just had a new set of 4 fitted and would like to run them at the correct pressure which is not listed in the manual. I notice a previous owner has...
  17. Classic Saab 9-3/GM900 (1994 - 2002)/Conv ( -2003)
    I used my dads car over the last few days and did 210 miles and I did put in £20 worth of petrol which took it from 1/4 full to about 75 full. After I'd done the 210 miles, it now is almost empty. And my father is now complaining about this. I checked his tyre pressures this morning when the...
  18. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    Sorry for such a banal thread, but what PSI do people run their Pilots at? The wheel is 16", so tyre is 215/55R16. My Handbook suggests 32 all round for normal and 39 all round for fully loaded. Since I tend to be low occupancy I tend to run them all at 33. But I was looking at the Haynes...

    Evening, dudes Are the low pro' tyres for the 17" Aero Alloys more prone to losing pressure than those with taller side-walls? I've noticed that at least 2 of mine - on the 9-5 Aero Estate - drop by 3+ psi every week or two. I wonder if replacing the existing dust caps with Pressure Guards...
  20. Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    What tyre sizes and pressure does everyone have? I run a set of 205/55/16 Dunlop SP Sport 9000 tyres on and I've noticed that when new the fitters recommend 31 PSI and that I push this up to 34PSI the next day. the handling and ride also improve dramatically.
