I think they are called Aero92. I know they are not the most loved, but I really don't like the 15 spoke I have (I think they make the car look cheap). Found a set with tires for cheap and wondering how they look. Haven't seen them in person yet, but the pic of the one looks good. If you have them please share some pics. (I'm in a 93 white vert S). Thanks.

I had those on my '90 SPG and my … '88 9000T? and liked them. I can probably dig up some pics. Bear in mind there were three versions of the wheel - 5.5" wide for 900s, 6" wide for 9000s and the grey-painted centers for 900CEs.

He has 205/55/15 tires on them and he said they came off a 900. I have 185/65/15 on my 15 spoke so I'm not sure what size the rims are. Not sure if the difference in tire size will make a huge difference (or if they will fit). My tires are in great shape and these are supposed to be in good shape. Wasn't planning on switching the tires over since I only drive it 100 miles or so a year. Here's a pic of the rim (he only has one pic), and does have the 4 caps..

Also known as SAAB Aero Directionals from the early 1990's - Gray was stock with Silver reserved for the 900 Turbos of the same years [including the 1994T Convertible]. Personally, I don't like them much, but they are very easy to clean. Install them rotationally the right way round otherwise they can look odd.

Thanks for the pics. They look good. I think I will go with them if he hasn't sold them already. Hopefully they are in good shape and nothing is bent.

Pick them up tomorrow morning. They look pretty good to me and for $70 don't think I can go wrong (unless they are all bent). He has the caps and lugs as well. Hopefully most of the black marks at the edges are just rubber or dirt, but for the price a little curb rash won't bother me. Hopefully the tires have a little life left.

I think they look much better than 15 spoke. Before and after shot (forgot to roll down the windows). Well worth the $70. But being 205/55 vs 185/65 they are .59 inches shorter. May consider dropping it by and inch or so.

I would go with stock tire size rather than lowering the car. Or you can try 195/65 tires wich have higher side walls and are close to stock 185/65 regarding wheel circumference...

I think it rides a little high either way, so I have been thinking of dropping it a bit. But for now I am good with it. The tires that came on the rims have some decent tread, so I will keep them. They are probably at the edge for width, but it does look a little meaner with them. 195s would probably what I would go with next. It's a car I rarely drive (700 miles in the last 3 years), so for now they are good and they seem to ride a bit nicer than the 185s.
