Default 9-3 SS aftermarket wheel gallery

There are many threads with pictures, sizes and recommendations of aftermarket wheels on this forum. It can take hours to look through so let's start a gallery of wheels. Please provide all relevant data so it is easy for others to find the best wheels for their car.

Rial Nogaro 17 x 8 ET35
Continental ExtremeContact 235/45WR17
Purchased from TireRack for $1,289 (wheels $169, tires $118)
Great ride, quieter and better handling than stock 16x6.5 215/55R16 Pirelli's)

More information and pictures here.

Those look good I was looking at the same rims for my car. I was thinking of getting 18's will that really ruin the ride?

Good idea.

I had 17" ASA EM9 wheels, wrapped in both Yokohama AVS ES100s and Nexen N3000s. The Nexens were brand new and cheap. They wheels came from a 9-5... not sure what the offset was.

The avove tyres look a lot like the GY F1 tyres. How do they fare?

Let's keep this thread focused on wheels and not about discussing tires, please.

Very nice Jackchoo, do you have any bigger pictures? A close up of those babies would be nice. What did they cost?

I was going back and forth between the Rial and Borbet wheels. I think both look really great on the 9-3 and I just had to toss a coin at some point.

19x8? They're going to look sick. Be sure to post some nice pictures when you get them!

Thumbs up

I love that anthracite color. I'd like to get my stock rims painted like this. Have to check the price...

What's hertzkasper? Tuning?

Oh man, that looks amazing!

I love how you can see the tires at the lower edges of the car when looking at it straight-on.

That's what I liked about mine as well .

hertzkasper, do you have a volume discount on front spoilers? I would probably need a a new one every month if mine would be as low to the ground as yours.

I'm just driving carefully ... the trim high (!?) was enough for the last 25.000 km

the lowered look is really fine - especially with winterwheels





a very good feature of the nuvo-rims: the dirtier they are, the better they look
