I also had a ford escort GT, and found the Yokohama A378 60 touring tires, (also 195/60/15)
to be excellent wet/dry tires. Yes, they were somewhat harsher than the Sport all-seasons
i replaced them with, but they wear very well, don't squeel too easy, handle nice, and are
very predictable. also a very cheap tire (as i assume price is a factor). if you could
afford a car with crisp handling, AND a smooth ride, you wouldn't be driving a saturn, or
escort anyway. But as far as i'm concerned, for that type of car they are the best tire
for the money. A bit of caution, though, They are like skates on ice/slush/packed snow. I
had a set of dedicated snow tires on factory alloys, which I had picked up for under $100
bucks at a local junkyard. Seems to me that 15x6 rims are the most common (easy to find
anyway) alloys out there. for that price, the rims were paid for in one year just by the
savings of mounting/balancing.
