Saab 9-3 Aero convertible 6 speed: I'm looking very

Customer Question
I'm looking for the very...
I'm looking for the very best Performance tire for my 2008 9-3 Aero convertible. I drive a lot of winding mountain roads and also with a lot of rain.
What can I do as far as getting better performance? What about a sport exhaust system to give it a much better sound since I'm driving a 6-speed manual?
