Personally I think the Viggen rims are very nice, but also soft and easy to bend. Bolt pattern is 5 x 110, not a very common size. Search at Tires.com or Tirerack.com.

the stock ones on this one are decently scuffed up, so instead of paying money to redip em or powdercoat em id figure id get a new set

Here are the ones I'm getting - nothing special - just SAAB 'Nails'. After tons of research, I think I'm going to go with Michelin Pilot Sport A/S...

Those aren't the nail wheels, they're the dual-three spokes. They're the same ones I have! I don't think you can get the nail wheels (picture below) in the US. When I replace my tires, I'm going to get the new Goodyear Eagle F1 GS-D3. I thought Michelins were a little on the pricey side, but they're very good tires.

Yep - Nails are the ones I want, but I couldn't find a picture that I could manipulate enough with 'Windows Paint' to put on the car! You caught me...

If I could make a suggestion Taliaferro just started offering these wheels. Price isn't too bad either.
