Could be BBS-R 5x112 w/ wobble bolts or ACE Alloys "MESH 7" wheel (custom drilled from factory) w/BBS caps.

Thanks for the link. I realized they're BBS CH-Rs because the spokes don't converge, they are parallel all the way to the lip, as opposed to the ACE wheels, which converge toward the lip.

Default BB CH Wheels

These replicas are 5 x 110 and slightly different to my #6 above as per Swedespeed's comment that split spokes are parallel.

I bought these wheels for my old cavalier and they are five lug universals. I have looked all over the internet for what they are but i cant find any information on these rims and not very much on the tires. The tires are Wynstar Exocet 205/40z/16. If anyone could help me out with the name of the rims and how much they are it would be greatly appreciated. They are too small for my Saab so I'm looking to sell them and the more information the better. Thanks in advance

I really like the 17" 6 flat spoke motor sport look like on the early GM Vectra b gsi model. Think I might have to look into whether they'll fit?

Lots of 6 spoke options, which I'm also a fan of. Enkei Sestos are pretty good looking and they're 17" too, and they come in 5x110 bolt pattern.

Also look here for more 6 spoke options:

Just a quick cellphone pic but finally got the Forgestars on the car.

Forgestar F14 in Gloss Gunmetal
18x8.5 et35
Running Cooper Zeon RS3-S
245/40R18

Was iffy about getting wheels that are similar color to my paint but I'm glad I did! I think it turned out well..will get better pictures.

is it more or does it seem like everyone is getting these wheels. Not just saabs, but vdubs, audis, and bimmers seem to be getting them too.

Agreed. I think it's because they look good on any car, and look unique on all sorts of cars, especially SAABs. The F14s are basically a combination of BMW and Audi OEM designs (think M3 and RS4).

Props to kanundrum for taking the plunge on Forgestars!!

Although chowfun's F14s are the first 18s I've seen and they look spectacular. More pics please!
