GobigredI have a 1991 Saab 9000 that was purchased in Europe (but has U.S. specs). Manufacturer calls for size 195/65R/15 91H. Am stuck between a set of Cooper Lifeliner LSE H's (speed rated) or Michelin Rainforce MX4's 91T's (not speed rated). I prefer Michelin, but don't want to pay a fortune for their speed rated tires. Any thoughts?
donfromnaplesI would definitely stick with the recommended speed rating. I usually buy tires one or two speed ratings above the recommendations because I drive fairly aggressively and I want the security of handling and braking in emergency situations as well. I like the Bridgestone RE950 the best in your size for a car like your Saab. Then, I like the Dunlop SP A2 and also the Goodyear Eagle HP. They are all affordable tires. Check them out at to compare prices, customer survey results and any test results. For example, dropping from an H speed rated tire that came on your Saab to an S speed rated tire can increase your stopping distance by as much as 10 feet stopping from 60mph.
