They aren't something I would have picked, but they do look sharp ... very nice clean look to your car!:cool:

I find choosing wheels to be one of the hardest things to do with a car.
It is such a personal thing and it can dramatically change the look of the car.

It's actually so hard, I'm not sure I could do it ... at least not without trying a bunch "on for size".

Ahhhh, mush better!

I like the gunmetal and Chrome combo. Now you need more crome on the car!

Bling Bling!

Nice wheels.

I keep thinking about getting wheels but I kind of like my Saab OEM ones.
Am I the only one that likes his Saab wheels?
3 of them are in mint condition, so if I don't buy new I'll just get the 4th refinished.

Exactly the same with me, everyone keeps asking when I'm getting new wheels but although I look around quite a bit I think the OEM ones I have are really nice. Just had all four new tyres (Avon zz3's) so won't be for a while if ever....

Nice wheels though Black 93 - go well with the car and that is the main thing.

I like mine, but they dont like me :roll: :lol:

The guy over at Bent Rims says it's not just Vig wheels that bend, but many types of SAAB wheels. He said he used to keep SAAB spare wheels around because so many of his customers drive them.

Too bad there isnt some perfect combination of STRONG, LIGHT, CHEAP, and SIMPLE/GOOD-LOOKING rims around for saabs, in order of importance. I bet you could sell one or two of them. I'd take a set. Seems like now the best you can do is two or three of these qualities.

Those rims look great! And that black car looks really clean too! Tough to do.

ed, rimstock, thats what im goin for.
Dude, if this is anything like Woodstock(um.. the old one..), I'm in! I may even be able to get my hands on Dad's VW Bus :cheesy:

But seriously, what is this rimstock? A place to buy rims? They got anything that wont weigh ~45 pounds when I put tires on em?

BTW mg, what WAS the Viggen like with those little 16" steelies on it? I bet those things are really light! If you can keep them from spinning, I'd bet it feels like a much faster car.

You're not the only one. I upgraded to the 2001 Saab 9-5 Aero 17" 3-spoke on my 9-3. Clean enough not to stand out, but to the saab-guy its thumbs up all the way. :cheesy:

No I don't think its too much. I have just always been disapointed that my NG has a chrome grille, and only those stupid little plastic chrome strips in the bumper (which I have ripped out anyway). I just think its silly to have the chrome grill, and no other chrome on the car. Now you have a bit on the wheels, if you could find a place to add a little more, I think it would look even nicer. My mazda has a nice chrome window trim in addition to the grille and badges. I just need some nice chrome wheels!

TSW Kyalamis I believe. Are those 17's or 18's?
17". I would strongly avoid 18", if you want the car too seems to be in another gear than the neutral one ... :p

:nono;
