did any other manufacturer than SAAB (and therefore GM with Catera/Cobalt/Ion) use that retarded 5 x 110 bolt circle? I hope not. If thats the case, wheels wont fit.

Most Volvos are 5x108. So youll need wobble bolts.

Hub centric rings depending on the hub, and spacers depending on offset.

On a side note. The new dodge dart wheels will fit. they have a 5x110 pattern

No way, just find yourself a nice set of Saab rims, there are a lot out there.

Sad they are far because I'd snatch those for my Volvo in a blink. Nice rims and a nice price. Volvo owners are nuts and usually ask twice the price than Saab owners for rims.

The hub is different as well as the hole spacing.

Lots of people use wobble bolts, hell, I've seen numerous people on here with Volvo wheels. These are nice wheels, my buddy's S40 has them.

Lots of people use wobble bolts? Well that must make it okay. jkg.

Seriously I see a lot of silly stuff done over and over and thats one of them.
brakes tires and steering; three things to do it 100% by the book.
Did you see the post where the member found poly ovaled out in a suspension bushing in a very few miles, leading to 'wandering' down the road?

Yup.

Or the thread thats also live right now, OP chasing a spongy brake pedal, most likely caused by cheep brake pads fading?

yup.

My fave is the (not a saab member) who put in huge negative camber ( its the rage in some places) and drove from NY to Florida and ( what a shock) blew out the tires had to buy new)

etc.

usual disclaimers

Thanks for the feedback guys: i love Volvo and Saab both "as i've owned a few of each" and these wheels are killer! I wouldn't do wobble bolts myself so i guess this is a no go. I have a few sets of Saab wheels available to me, but i just happen to find these and said NOICE! *Australian Accent. I will post the variety so i can maybe get your opinions on what would look best after i get my suspension on!

I run Volvo wheels with wobble bolts. I haven't died in a fiery crash. I have never heard of wobble bolts causing a problem.

Here are the 3 sets available to me, at little to no cost:

17" vector wheels
17" ASA BBS wheels
16" Borbet wheels

I prefer a set of 17'' but i don't really admire any of the 2 sets on my particular car. I do however like the Borbet's, but 16's wouldn't be much of an upgrade...

My car will be lowered this weekend on bilstein sports, and vogtlands, and i wouldn't mind having some new wheels, ofcourse i'd clean these sets up a bit first!


OPINIONS PLEASE!!!!

You have access to Vector wheels for "little to no cost" and they're not already on the car???

Those are one of my favorite Saab wheels.

No contest, I'd take those. The other two look awful in my opinion.

LOL, well i work at a SAAB Volvo Specialist shop, and i can grab what i want for little to no cost when it comes available. And those look HOT with a viggen kit but i have a mugen type r lip, and se side skirts... So it may not be as nice. I also LOVE those wheels, but like i said im not sure how they'd be on my ride?

Post a side picture of your car, and I'll photoshop a set on there real quick.
