Default Your opinions please.

I've spotted some cheap (at the moment ) 16" wheels on Ebay but I'm not sure how they will look on my car. So what do you all reckon.

Would these look OK (Might get them resprayed though)



On this?

Are they supposed to be that colour

If I were you mate I'd stick with bright shiny ones - BUT, if they float your boat and the price stays within budget then get them.

If you decide you don't like them you can always put them back on ebay!

Default Wheels

Well from previous experience of Fords apleanty I would say that they are just a bit to Escort. The Saab is a very distinctive car and the wheels should be also.
Those wheels are TSW Blades or similar and they have ford written all over them.

Must admit, they'd go a treat on my Cavalier, but I damned if I'm going to convert it to 5 stud just for that.
I reality, the TSW Blade wheel was in fashion at the time of the launch of the ng900, but they lack a certain 'understatedness' [is there such a word? there bl00dy well is now!] which the ng900 & 9-3 family has. Then again if the price is right then what the hell, have them re-finished to your spec, but to do it right you'll need to look into slotted discs and caliper lacquer.

It's a poor job, I know, but I think it conveys the point pretty well all the same.

I agree with the rest of you. Pass on the wheels.

Shan't bother too do you a chopped pic of them on you're car, but I nearly got some on Ebay, there was someone on there that was outbidding me to the end tho' I must have cost them an extra 200 haha! They do work well on a 900, and suite lighter colours [even biege]

I think the 17" Viggen style saab alloys are fantastic. and...will look fantastic on your car.
I have seen 3 sets of these turn up in local scrap yards...but...alas, not on cars for breaking.

I really think its worth holding out for saab alloys.

...the above are Saab alloys (ALU22) for 93/95!

Here's a good link for genuine alloy pics:
