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?

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

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.

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?

That's what I liked about mine as well :D.

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 :cheesy:

Yeah that does look incredible. If i dropped mine with such a setup with our roads here, Im sure i would be picking up pieces from the interior as well the spoiler. Depsite that, the drop is drop dead gorgeous :eek:
