You should also take a look at Turner's Hill Saab in England. There are a couple of interesting 17" wheels there that we don't get in the US and Canada, like the 17" "nail" wheels. Their address is http://www.turnershillsaab.co.uk

The brand TSW makes 5x110. Do a google search, and go to the company website. They list retailers...

I didn't have any problems finding 18" wheels for my ng900. I looked at Antera, MilleMiglia, Speedline, TSW, OZ, Momo, ATP, ACE, Kahn, Kosei to name a few..After some hard thinking I went for 7,5*18" OZ Velas, got a really nice deal on them with Pirelli P7000 rubbers on
If I remember correctly Opel has the same bolt pattern as the ng900..That might be of some help also..

Thats the one Opel/Vauxhall stud pattern, any wheel maker that does wheels for 5 stud Omega/Vectra/Calibra/Cavalier [GM Opel/Vauxhall models] should have wheels to fit NG900 and classic 9-3, as the primary chassis components are based on the venerable Cavalier.
That 49mm offset is a headache though!

Yeah but the offset shouldn't be a problem...I was just asking around at the Saab TurboClub of Sweden about what the offset should/can be on 18/19" wheels on the ng900..And there was one guy who told me that he used 19" wheels with 235/35-19 tires and offset 35, this on a 3d..He said that it only in bigger bumps has he experienced rubbing at the back..So with 18" wheels and 225/40-18 tires and offset 35 it should not cause any trouble...
