    Tire Time

    I need to start shopping around for new tires. I've started reading the wheel and tyre forums here, I'm a bit overwhelmed.
    I have a 2005 9-5 Linear wagon. Back says "2.3 T" which U suppose is 2,3t, or 2.3 Turbo.

    What I'm not sure of is whether I have 16" or 17" wheels. Maybe I'll just take a tape measure.

    Advice? Technical, as well as brand. For now I'm just getting tires one day I'll afford new wheels&winters.

    You'll most likely have 16" wheels which is standard for the Linear. But if it shows 2.3T on the back, you have an Arc or an incorrect badge on your Linear. Just check the size on your current tires and you can tell the diameter from that.

    When I shop for new tires, I usually go to TireRack or Discount Tire Direct and find the best choice based on price, reviews, wear rating and tire type. And I usually choose one of the big brands instead of a cheap and unknown tire from Asia.

    Weird - on Vincheck it says Linear 2.3T.
    On the hatch, it says 2.3 T - might be a lower case t.

    What I've found so far does look like 16" though - the current tires are 55R16 (IIRC).
