See, that's what I'm thinking too. I think it flows very well with the rest of my car.

I like the really small pink Viggen rims attached to the roof racks

lmao I know, I wasn't planning on those ending up in the shot, but I didn't really have room anywhere else as there were cars parked and I didn't bother taking them out of the picture in photoshop. I don't like touching my pictures unless I have to.

I kinda dig the bronze/gold on LB idea, but i feel like it may be better suited for a wheel without as much surface area. Maybe a multi-spoke wheel like the '02-'03 9-5 Aero wheels? Here's a few IRL examples that I've tried on my 5-door.

Gunmetal:



Flat black:

That looks good, but I want mine to be a very high gloss, and that changes everything. Nice 5 door btw!

You already know my vote is for gunmetal. But here are some pictures of my Viggen in its now-outdated glory rocking gunmetal rims.

I guess my question should have been, do you like the silver that's on it now; or should I go darker?
This is rice as fuk. And i hate when people ruin saab's image with that crap. (sorry saabeh).


IMO, deffinatly NO to the black.
Perhaps metallic gunmetal.

Kinda diggin the bronze.

I love the silver on your LB Viggen. The gunmetal on Chad's 4dr is as dark as I would go. Dark or black wheels look smaller than they really are. Most do look better in person as stated. I do like the viggen emblems being added like the volvo's R.

I think "swedish flag cross yellow" wheels against an LB Viggen would be both unique and euro looking.

but maybe that would be better for snows?

my vote goes with either the high gloss black, or gunmetal...no viggen jets on the spoke, custom make/match some center caps with vig emblems. ?

OEM silver looks best IMO. The dark gun metal or black wheels basically hide the design of the wheel. Too bad because the double 3 spoke is one of the sexiest looking wheels out there. Around here, black wheels are are generally 'steelies' used for snow tires.....

I think I'm gonna be doing that in real life! Either that or polish the lips, paint the faces black, and then paint the bolts gold! Just a little something to offset the black on black...
