Whats even more annoying is they only work out at 265 for a set. Genuine Saab alloys in the UK are 265 each.

Those rims are mint. I would have them on my black aero in the blink of a credit card. Shame that shipping and VAT would make them double (if not more) the price when they get to the UK.

Only if you have to use the steering to take a bend. Not an issue in the US!

I think 18x8 works for sure, but I have heard of 18x8.5 working as well. Not sure exactly which wheels or offset they were though.

I need a new contact prescription...but here's a real quickie

Used to know someone that worked at ADR wheels...but that was awhile ago. If anyone got those, they'd have to black out the logo so as to not be a "ricer"

If you left the label on, like in your Photoshop job above (nicely done btw), would they act like a baseball card in the spokes and make a vroooooom sound? and thus help the car go faster?
Ya I'll never grow up, but that's ok isn't it?

Speaking of rims, I was looking for a friend, when I found these puppies:
