You've got what looks like the same car I do, well depending on the mods. I also have done the clear corner and smoked turn signals. I also see that you have not tinted your windows yeah? I think it looks much cleaner without them tinted. But instead of the Viggen wheels, I decided on some 17" TSW's.

My website host doesnt allow direct linking to pictures, so heres my site where you can the TSWs at work.

Wow....Those Viggen wheels look sweet. I might reconsider getting rid of mine if my car eventually looks that good...

Hey Mark, those are the Hockenheims, right?
I love that style, really close to classic BBS, but I was a little worried about the extra weight. Has that been a problem for you?

saablaxer18,

Are those 17" Moda R1's, actual facotry Viggen rims, or something else? Where did you get them? How much?

Also, is your car lowered?

Looks very nice- good job!

I'm with you on the Hockenheim R's.....always liked them from way back. However, I'm not so sure now....especially on the Viggen. :-?

The TSW Fly is nice for a > 5-spoke, but take a look at the TSW Razor......so shweeet :D

Yes they are the Hokenhiem R's. I also liked how they resemble BBS wheels and a set of 17's were only $380, I took up the oppertunity. I agree that they do look great from a little distance, but they are wheels that just dont really look good in a picture. I have yet to be satisfied with a picture that Ive taken. I just think my car needs to be lowered then they will set in with the car. Of course there will always be weight issues and going from a 16x6.5" to a 17x8" there was noticable increase but for the grip that I have gained, it was worth it. Ive been able to take an on ramp at full highway speed as apposed to starting to slide at 55, highway is 65 here.

Ozzy_UK, that's what I said...."greater than" or ">" 5-spoke. I guess I should've just written the word out :P

Yeah, I bought these rims from a guy with a Viggen. I do like these rims but I really want deep dish wheels. My car is lowered with Intrax springs and Bilstein shock and struts. I have inside MBC, New Turbo, Itake, Turbo back JT 3' Exhaust, Dual A pillar pod filled with air/fuel, and boost guages.

Try Cheapwheels.com (http://www.cheapwheels.com/) You can get 4 rims for about $300 ~ $450 depending on size.

I really like the TSW AVUS R in 17 x 8". I think it will look pretty sweet on my Silver Viggen... :cheesy:
