Gislaved and General are owned by Continental.

The General Altimax Arctic tires in the US/Canada are old Gislaved designs.

Gislaved gets some of their "new" tires from old Continental designs.

Dry performance ist not my main focus. Nor do I trust cheap chinese tyres in the rain...

Nankang are a Taiwanese brand that has been in Business since the 50's.

So not exactly a LingLong.

I have used the NS2 on a Subaru Legacy and they were fine.

I only tried them because a friend used them on the rear of his Z3, I can't remember which engine but it was a 6 cylinder so probably the 2.8 or 3.0.

It's winter now, so perhaps a good time for a follow-up on these summer tyres. cool

I chose the Uniroyal for their wet abilities. Consequently, the summer turned out to be the hottest and driest summer in recorded history (at least in Germany). Which means my wife got to drive them once in the wet (she liked them), and at the very end of autumn, I also had one (!) wet drive at Autobahn speeds, during which they were excellent.
Else? Impossible to tell.
(The SAAB 900 NG basically is a dressed-up Opel/Vauxhall Vectra A, with McPherson crap in the front and even worse, a twist-beam rear axle in the back, which means there is absolutely no fun to had in corners anyways, and thus it is hard to say anything about the tyres handling characteristics.)
