  1. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    Need to replace my front tyres, still legal but not far off the markers and getting a bit noisy, so I'm going to replace them with the same Continental sport 2 tyres. I'm sure I have read on here and elsewhere that when replacing just a pair of tyres that you should move the rear wheels to the...

    I had a look at Neo brothers site and they are actively promoting them so as I respect these guys opinions I am considering them on a 4 tyre change I will need to do in the next 8 weeks or so. But! as these seem quite an unknown brand / make I wanted to ask if anyone is using them currently and...
  3. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    I know that this has been 'done to death' already but as with every one else my 9-3 aero suffers from really bad road noise. I'm just about to buy some new tyres and would really apretiate any feed back on what would make a real difference, many people have reported improvements with various...

    Aero 17” Alloys and Tyres for sale: Tyres are GoodyearEagle F1 (tyres purchased last year receipt for £375.60 available). The rear tyres have little wear still have knobbly bits on outside of tyres, front are certainly more worn but still very legal. Tyres have even wear across the tread...
  6. Classic Saab 9-3/GM900 (1994 - 2002)/Conv ( -2003)
    I have these fitted to my 1997 9-3, but I had to have the rear body panels modified. This was done to stop the tyres from scraping against the side of the car when the suspension travel pushed the tyres to the maximum upwards position. I am now looking at replacing my 1997 model for a 2002 model...
  7. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    I am due to change the front tyres on my 03 Saab 95 Aero (225/45 R17). Being rather cost conscious, I am actively considering buying budget tyres. I only use my car for tottering around town (usually to Tescos, dropping kids to school, etc.), for the odd trip on the motorway and a trip abroad...

    Hi, I have a set of deep dish Aero wheels (closed centre type) with poor tyres. They are a straight set but with some kerbing. The paintwork is fair but not great, they look OK when fitted. Some of the tyres are legal, but not great. These are a good useable set. £175 ono please. Collection...

    Hi, I have a set of deep dish Aero wheels (closed centre type) with tyres, 205/55/16 (plenty of tread and no punctures). They are a nice straight set with NO rim damage NO kerbing. The paintwork is very good and they look superb when fitted. These are not the usual festering, tired looking...
  11. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    Let's say you really should have bought that Range Rover but for a number of reasons you needed to buy a car quickly. Let us further say that the car you bought was a 2004 MY 9-5 Vector Sport Estate with a 2.3t engine. Let us even further say that it turns out that this car is just as inept at...
  12. Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    Just put my snow tyres on the car today, getting ready for the long winter in the alps, its a very strange feeling you can feel the car moving around as the rubber moves, but it has increased the grip level about 50%, has anyone else run snow tyres on there saab and if so what where you wear...
  13. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    Need new rears on my Griffin, 215,5516 Have heard good reports on Toyo Proxes TI-R, can get these for £78 or Yokohama S306 for £78 fitted or Avon ZV5 at £85 both W rated any comments on either? I want good grip wet and dry and low noise, not oveerly bothered about wear rates. Thanks all
  14. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    I have seen a lot of discussion regarding the wisdom of fitting reinforced tyres to a 9-5. Does this only apply to the Aero versions? or do all require them? My car is a 2001 Griffin with 215/55/16 tyres currently runnig Hankook Ventis Sport that were on when I bought it, they are very good...

    I'm after a set of alloys with tyres for my 9-5. Not too bothered if they are 16's or 17's, though wouldn't mind a set of Aero alloys! Tyres must be decent brands (Michelin, Pirelli, Continental, Bridgestone, Vredestein, Firestone, Dunlop, Goodyear etc) with 4mm plus and no damage / bald spots /...

    I got four new Continental Sport tyres on my 9-5 yesterday. I thought they were all the same but noticed last night that the front ones are rated 94 and the rears are 91. Looking at the overall weight of the car and axle loads, this shouldn't be a problem, although I'm not sure what would...
  17. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    Possibly going to be doing a number of european winter trips this year and does anyone have advice relating to winter wheels/tyre combinations for a 95 Aero? Snowchains aren't really a long term option - maybe for isolated snow locations/skiing trips - investigated this and Konig do a new chain...
  18. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    Got back to Diss station last night to find I had a puncture - then couldn't get the wheel off the hub! Finally shifted it by replacing the wheel bolts loosely and driving the car back and forth a couple of yards. Phoned around this morning to get a new tyre and found City Tyre and Exhaust in...
