Default 2002 Volvo S80 Tires

I have a 2002 Volvo S80 2.9L not the T6. I need new tires but I don't know which ones to get.
Would someone please reccomend some that give the car a smooth and quiet ride.

thanks

I just got four new Yokahoma tires on my 99 S80 and the car now runs smooth as silk both in road and highway so I really feel a difference.

I use Yokohama AS-430's.... iv found the Yokos to be the best match between price and performance for this car... its about middle range in terms of pricing but AA traction and great treadwear ratings...

Yeah I was looking at Yokohama S. Drives, they look pretty sweet and the reviews are good however the price is around $160, not too bad but lets hope it's worth it. Thanks guys

Another vote for Yokohama. I have them on my Mercedes too. I've got the YK520's only available from Discount Tire.

don't remember what I paid, but they are well worth it. Good handling, quiet, even wear. Rotate them every 6k. Got 25k on the ones on my Mercedes and they still look like new.

Good choice for any car!
