New wheels

I have a steel grey aero and I'm thinking about these rims. The only thing I'm not so sure about is the red line, but I will have red calipers and I think it may go well with having tinted windows too.

any comments??

Link didn't work, want to post pics?

This is, of course, besides the point. Your car looks pretty awesome as is..

I think it may look to ricerish with that setup. All black would be ok.

Do you have pics of the car now? To be sure.

yes they are a different bolt pattern, but they do make 5x112 17's but in an odd offset or something I have to double check that. The price I got quoted from tirerack when I called was 473 each...not bad considering what they are. I'm sure I could just get an adapter made for the correct bolt pattern??

wobble bolts would work fine. but the hubs are different, and you cant go from big(saab) to small(vw/audi) thru an adapter, at least i dont think you can(someone correct em if im wrong).

meaning youd have to bore them by a guy in a machine shop.

itd be a lot of work, id keep looking for something for a volvo, cause they have a 5x108 pattern adn jsut wobble bolts are needed i believe.
