Oct 19, 2007 update to the Saab 99 LE project car

New Shoes for Garfield

Our new "soccerball" wheels.
Sometimes just a good, basic tire will do.

Sometimes a car doesn’t need super-sticky R-compound tires, sometimes it just needs a good basic tire that can handle rain or a little bit of snow.

Sometimes a car doesn’t need super-sticky R-compound tires, sometimes it just needs a good basic tire that can handle rain or a little bit of snow. Our 1974 Saab 99 needed something to replace the old mismatched set of no-name donuts that it came with, so we mounted up a set of General Altimax HP 185/65R15 tires.

Our plan is to get the engine’s water pump fixed later in November when we’re back from some travel. We’ll get a good review of these tires then.

We also got a set of Soccerball alloy wheels shot blasted. They’ll get a coat of paint and a new set of tires before they get bolted up to our barnfind Saab.
