Hi,<p>Is it far fetched to put more of a performance tire on my new XC70? I'm not thrilled with the soft overall ride with the Scorpion STR. <p>Maybe I'm trying to turn my pseudo SUV ride into a pseudo performance ride? Do we really need All season/truck tires on this car?<p>I will use winter tires in the winter but would like a firmer ride in the dry months.

Re: Oscar, need more of performance tire on xc70 (msinn)

I would offer up a Bridgetone HL Alenza in the 225/70-16 as a solution. They have a price point of $117.00 and a mail in rebate of $75.00 for a set of four.

Oscar, wouldn't one need to go to a lower profile tire when opting for a wider tread? Something like a 225/60-16?
