Hmm hard to say, they look really busy but not in a horrible way. Depends on the color of the car. IMO

Photshop? someone put them on a 900 and then a Viggen then a 9000. Might look okay with the right calipers and rotors.

oh i think it'd look awful on a 3 series... sorta like how it doesn't look good on the 1 series. maybe with the difference in size between the 2 cars it might make a difference... but i can't see it on a 3er. i was thinking on either a black or blue viggen they'd look pretty good...

They're kind of like a gnarly, updated version of the old soccerball wheels. Kinda cool in my eyes.

They sort of remind me of the Cosmic Alloys that came on my MGBGT.

Pics is on a Mini, but similar to mine:



I dig 'em. They are different.

They'd look better on an 04+ SS than anything else, I think.

If you guys want to post up a couple of Viggen or SS pics, I'll be happy to photochop 'em in there for you. Either that or point me to a couple photos you think would work linky wise. Graphic Designer + bored at work = Trouble. Haha.

I think he was being hypothetical about the looks, not in the market to buy them. Seeing as how they are AC Schnitzer wheels, they won't fit a Saab, and they will probably cost $500+ a wheel...

there's no way in hell i'd buy them! may saab, if i ever get around to fixing it, will forever stay stock. i just thought they might look kinda cool on a saab... remind me of maybe the double spoke III? i dunno saab wheels.... they remind me of one of the saab wheels except for they're 5 spoke instead of 3... err... rather a 10 spoke instead of 6.

now let me search for a few pictures that might work...
