Default 9-3 SS aftermarket wheel gallery

There are many threads with pictures, sizes and recommendations of aftermarket wheels on this forum. It can take hours to look through so let's start a gallery of wheels. Please provide all relevant data so it is easy for others to find the best wheels for their car.

Rial Nogaro 17 x 8 ET35
Continental ExtremeContact 235/45WR17
Purchased from TireRack for $1,289 (wheels $169, tires $118)
Great ride, quieter and better handling than stock 16x6.5 215/55R16 Pirelli's)

More information and pictures here.

Those look good I was looking at the same rims for my car. I was thinking of getting 18's will that really ruin the ride?

Good idea.

I had 17" ASA EM9 wheels, wrapped in both Yokohama AVS ES100s and Nexen N3000s. The Nexens were brand new and cheap. They wheels came from a 9-5... not sure what the offset was.

The avove tyres look a lot like the GY F1 tyres. How do they fare?

Let's keep this thread focused on wheels and not about discussing tires, please.

Very nice Jackchoo, do you have any bigger pictures? A close up of those babies would be nice. What did they cost?

Do you have change calipers and pads when you change to drilled rotors or can you leave the calipers and pads stock?

They can be left stock. It's just a replacement rotor that happens to be drilled.

I love that anthracite color. I'd like to get my stock rims painted like this. Have to check the price...

Thanks for the photos guys, I just ordered 19 x 8 Rial Nogaro Bright Satin with machine lip and 235/35WR19 General Exclaim UHP for my 05 9-3. I never had GFeneral Tires before but the Tire Rack Reviews where very high for them. I'll post some pics when I get them next week.
