Default Wheels that fit the 9-3

I know that the lug pattern on our cars is 5X110
But does anyone know what other brand/model/year cars have the same lug pattern as ours?
I am trying to buy some used wheels for my Saab, but can't find anyone selling any used wheels of the Saab around here..

Thanks!

i beileve the cadillac catera, chevy cobalt, pontiac g6 and possibly vw golf iv's did on some models. But you will also need to find the right offset.

My advice, incase you don't find rims that suit your needs...

1) Find a wheel with the right offset (ET 35-41) and center bore (i think 65.1)
2) Pick up some adjustable bolts (40 -50 bucks)
3) Forget the 5 x 110
4) Choose a different bolt pattern

What are you saying, I can change the wheel lug pattern on my Saab??
I have some wheels laying around from my Corrado that I would love to fit...
And I can find other 5 lug wheels all day long....

So how do I change out my lug bolt pattern?

Well, in our case, our stock wheel bolt pattern is 5 x 110...It will stay 5 x110, but with adjustable bolts, you can fit wheels with different bolt patterns.

If you get adjustable bolts, you can either fit 5 x 108 or 5 x 112 (+-2 mm).

You also have to take into consideration other things such the offset (very important) and the center bore (fitment issues), so im not sure about your Corrado as they might likely have a bolt pattern of 5 x 100 or some other pattern...

Yeah i thought they would be 5 x 100, which will not work.

Remember, it has to be +- 2 mm from the original bolt pattern (5 x 110) in order for them to work.

Any local wheel shop should be able to help you get those bolts. I got my bolts from BBS Canada, so BBS USA could probably get you what you are looking for.
