  1. Wheel sizes for winter tires

    9-3 Sedan, Cabrio '04+, Combi, 9-3X Workshop
    Just bought my first Saab yesterday, a 2009 9-3 XWD. :) As I'm in Canada, I want to put winter tires and rims on it, but I'm looking for some guidance on wheel sizes. The car is stock with 225/50/17, but 17" rims and tires are quite pricey. I can get a set of Nokian Hakkapelitta 205/70/R15...
  2. Anybody have issues upgrading to 18" wheel and wide tires?

    Has anybody out there upgraded to a size 18"x8" rim with +40 offset and with size 235/40/18 tires? I have my eyes on a set, but am concerned about rubbing and clearance or other issues. Will they fit okay? Ride okay? The look is awesome in this size.
