Hello all,

I know this has appeared before on these here forums, but can anyone point me in the direction of vendor(s) who can supply modern alloy wheel / tyre combinations for my '90 900i?

Some say that Ford-spec wheels will work with the proper offset, etc. Just on a whim I went into Halfords and they came back saying that no wheels (that they carry at least) would fit the Saab. Thoughts?

Thanks

PS - and, yes, I'll keep the originals safe and sound!

Oh dear, going to Halfrauds and expecting sensible advice :D :D.

You are correct Ford fitment wheels will go straight on (my car has been running Ford fitment rims for the last 5 or so years). If looking for a 7" wide rim then you need something with around a 35mm offset.

So . . . if I find a wheel I like (Ford fitment, 4 lug, 17" x 7", 35mm offset), would this be enough information for a shop to order them for me? Or am I missing some other key bits?

Alex - where did you buy your wheels?

Ta!

Yup, that is enough information, all you then have to decide on is the style. I bought my wheels from Protyre.

Alex,

What about the center hole? saab is 65,1 mm, do ford wheels fit straight on? Or do you need spacers/machining the wheels?
