I know saab is 110 but I though I saw somewhere that someone said 5x112 wheels would work to? I'l looking at a set of 18" 5x112 8.5 wheels that would just look beautiful but I'm thinking they aren't gonna work.

never mind sorry about that 112 is the same size as audi,vw rims and they don't fit I did see some where that some fit a slightly different size rim on their saab on this site

not all true. some (most VWs not sure about audis) are 5x100.

the passat is 112.

if someone could confirm that 5x112 that would be great if would open up my rim search a whole lot since many VW/Audi rims are 5x112 and when you do a search for 5x110 not much shows up?

There is a member in Portugal, i think, that has MB Italia wheels in a 5x112 pattern and says he has had no issue with fitment or vibration.

I believe if you have the right hub centric ring which will properly center the wheel on the hub, our lug bolts have a cone portion that can slide side to side slightly around the bolt allowing the cone portion to be slightly off center from the bolt but seating properly in the wheel.

I was under the impression that 5x112 wheels would fit, as would 5x108... you just need a different wheel bolt.
Thats right you need a special bolt.
I have had 19" BBS Challenge with 5*112 for over a year on my former SS.
Important!!! The center ring must be 65,1.

DJ,

Can't we use the conic bolts our cars come with?

You have had no issues?
Sorry but no...
Go to your wheel/rim dealer and say that you want to have 5*112 rims on your 5*110 car and he will help you get the right bolts.

In this link the bolt is numberd 13:

No problems and I have had them on for a long roadtrip in Europe.

Thanks.

What springs to you have on your car and what is the mm drop?
Eibach -30mm (20mm from the sport chassie)
Worked very well even with the BBS 8,5*19" ET 35.
Planing on using the same springs on my 9-3 SC Aero with my Hirsch 19".

What a nice dealer you have....loan you a car till October!
Yes, it's great! :D
But it is my third Saab i bought in only 3 years. 9-3 M01, 9-3 SS M04 and now the 9-3 SC M06.
Also, my father has been driving Saab since 1982.
Everyone bought new at the same dealer.
