Default Hirsch finally has these for sale

$424.00 a piece. 19x8

These have to be my favorite wheel so far. They even have some lip on them I have always been a big fan of the SAAB Aero wheels.

I had 19 inch wheels on my A4. It wasn't that bad. You have no rim protection at all though.

I think that they would look considerably better (and more Saab-ish) if they did not have the “cut-outs” on each spoke of the rim.

Saab needs to bring these classic type Aero wheels
as an option for us true Saab fans. I always liked
when they had these Aeros on , especially when the
cars were moving, giving a spinning propeller effect.
It correlated with the aircraft heritage Saab is famous
for.

They look great but they remind me of the Pontiac Sunfire's wheels



I guess they don't have the Sunfire over there.

Default I like Ronal RTs better at $212.00 each.

I'd like to see a 9-3SS with RTs from Ronal.

See my RTs on my C900.

Hi Chris, I'm running 215/45/17 Proxes ZR-1/FZ-4s on Ronal RT 17x7.5 rims. I like the tires but will go cheaper next time and compare the difference.

I'm not sure what different sizes Ronal has. I love these rims. They are very easy to wash and have been great for about a year now.

I had to use 10mm spacers to clear the wheel well inside body. These rims and tires really make my C900 drive on rails. I also have heavy load springs in back which stiffen out the turns very nicely. 8)

Not the best, but check my thread out, inspired by your wheels...
