Saabs are 5X110

Those say 5X120

Not to mention the center hub bore.

ive emailed the company before, email them you can get 5x112 and run wobble bolts. but keep in mind they are cheap wheels and you get what you paid for i wouldent expect them to withstand a deep pot hole. you should come to cars and coffee i can give you information about stuff.

hmm... yeah i've put in an email to them and i'll see what they say. yeah that's my only concern... they look great but i've been talking to the seller and he says they're made in Taiwan and i'm not sure i want to put fakes on my saab...

I've heard about cars and coffee and i'd love to come some time I just feel like I'd be the youngest one there... I'm only 18!
