    I have an L-300 with the sports suspension package. One of my few
    dislikes has been the excessive road noise. Well, the Affinity tires
    finally wore to the replacement point (~35,000) and I replaced them with
    a set of Dunlops. Wow, what a difference! My L-300 is now as quiet as
    my wife's Maxima.

    You've learned what some of us have already,
    (and what the honest salesfolk will tell you)
    Firestones blow!
    Our 2002 LW300 made 24K before wife was scared of car in rain.
    Now have Michelins and are much happier.
    They must be getting a heck of a deal on them Firestones.

  3. Some day I will need to replace the tires on our L300... that time is a ways
    off, though - we killed the first set in 24k miles due to the rear
    suspension issue, so they replaced all 4 tires with new ones... more
    Affinity's... oh well - after getting the suspension repaired (to address
    the alignment issues which '00-01 and possibly later L series cars had) it's
    a bit quieter with the new tires... It's my wife's daily driver, and she
    likes it, so they are going to be on there for a while...

    I had a '97 SW2 with those noisy Firestones and replaced them at 38k
    miles with much quieter Goodyears. I traded the car in six months
    later for an '01 SW2 and had the dealership swap out the new
    Firestones with the Goodyears. Yeah, I wonder why Saturn corporate is
    sticking with them for so long.
