What is the bolt pattern on the 9.3ss? I will be getting mine next week and want to see what kinds of wheels i can put on it.

5x110 center bore 65mm.

Good luck finding nice wheels for it. SAAB and Opel are the only ones that use this bolt pattern. I didn't like what Tirerack stocked. So I just bought the OEM Euro wheels. I have my 5 spoke 17 inch sport wheels for sale. :wink:

Is this the twin 5-spoke you have? Or just the 5-spoke ones? Have you weighed the 17" 5-spoke? I found a new wheel from OZ-racing that will fit. OZ Canyon but I don't think it is available yet. Seems to be only available in Japan right now. Strange.....

Jerry, I have the regular 5 spokes. The wheel and tire weigh 52 pounds a piece.

Yikes! That's heavy. I didn't expect them to weigh more than 20kgs.

It includes the tire, as well. So, 52 lbs is about right.

That bolt pattern doesn't seem that unusual.

My Mustang has 5 x 4.5" bolt pattern. Let's see if I can convert inches to MM. :P

4.5 x 24.7 = 111.15 MM. They are pretty close and my Mustang bolt pattern is pretty common.

The Mustang bolt pattern is 5x114.3. Ford uses many different bolt patterns. 5x100, 5X112, 5x114.3, 4x108

VW/Audi 5x100/5x112
BMW 5x120
Mercedes 5x112
Porcshe 5x130
Japanese 5x114.3, 4x108
Volvo 5x108
American..too many different combos

SAAB/Opel 5x110

I had about 1,000 different wheels to choose from, when I had my VW's and Audi's. It doesn't make sense for some wheel manufactures to make a wheel in a 5x110 bolt pattern when there is only two car companies using it.

I agree. PCD 110 is rather odd. Opel and Saab are the only 2 I know of using them. PCD 100 is the most common, followed by 114.3 and 112. The rest like 108 or 98 are pretty odd too.

I still think 52lbs with tyres is rather heavy. I was expecting something in the 45lbs range.

Maybe I am too accustomed to lighter wheels.

Chris, how much do you reckon the rim alone weighs?

Every 5 lug mustang that has ever been build uses the same bolt pattern.

Is there any reason they would do that? I would hate to think they did it just to be different. Maybe some obscure safety reason? (Using aftermarket wheels degrades the safety of the vehicle & could hold Saab liable?) :roll:

I believe that they did it for safety reasons. I found it strange though that Opel followed suit. Didn't GM buy Opel first? :-?? I believe Saab has always been PCD 110. Anyone here knows for sure?

I do know that a lot of other manufacturers like Alfa Romeo for example uses PCD 98. There aren't many aftermarket wheels in this bolt pattern either. Those that have it are usually Italian made ones. Volvo is the other one and they have PCD 108. I know the Volvo owners here are always griping about the unavailability of aftermarket wheels for their turbo bricks.

The other thing that most auto manufacturers do is to use a different centre bore for their wheels. Make sure to use the right one and if not have an adaptor fitted. Using wheels with the wrong centre bore ie. larger (obviously) can cause wheel balance and stability problems. Again, Opel has followed Saab in this aspect and use 65mm as well. :roll:

where did you get the Mustang bolt pattern in MM? I have always been told it was 5 x 4.5". Unless my conversion to MM is off, I can't see how they have a 5 x 114.3 MM.

I'm not sure. How much does 35 psi of air weigh :D

Most wheel companies have fitment guides on their websites.

4.5 inch = 4.5 x 25.4 = 114.3mm (conversion should be 1 inch = 25.4mm) hehehehe.... I should know I convert imperial to metric units all the time.

This is a pretty common bolt pattern for most Japanese cars. I think Nissan and Toyota uses this bolt pattern.

See, I new I had the the wrong conversion figure. Thanks. You are right about Toyota. I have seen Mustang wheels on Tacomas.
