I have four Bridgestone G009s on my '97 base Wagon, and they are just outstanding performers.

For under $50 each after rebate, I don't see how you can do better in an H-rated high performance A/S.

I believe they went from the 205/50/16 to the 205/55/16 if i remember correctly.
There were many issues with blowouts and Volvo switched to the 205/55/16

Yes the 205/55/16 is what came stock on my 97 t-5 wagon.

i had a few bubbles on the tire walls. all part of the lawsuit on "safety".

Not only bubbles, our 850 had 2 bent rims in the time we owned it. With the $500 or new set of tires that Volvo gave everyone at the time, they upgraded to the new "55" size. After we changed to it, we no longer got bubbled tires or bent rims.
