Which tyres for my Saab 9-3X?
"I have purchased a 2009 Saab 9-3X 2.0T Station Wagon and it has 235/45/ZR18 tyres, Pirelli on the rear and Hankooks on the front. The rears need replacing now and the fronts soon. I am thinking of getting four season tyre replacements but am not sure which would be the best. I can't seem to find Vredestein Quatrac 3s this size. What would you recommend please?"
Switch to 16-inch or 17-inch wheels with sensible profile tyres. www.tyremen.co.uk does a set of TUV approved 16-inch wheels for £335. The cost of these wheels and tyres will not be much more than a set of 235/45 R18 tyres. Quatrac 3s are good, but Continental Winter Contact TS850 now get the nod from tyrereviews.co.uk for all year round use.
