Should I Buy These for my '78 99 Turbo ?

http://minneapolis.craigslist.org/pts/638824180.html

4x114.3 - they're the right size.

235/35/18 would match the stock size perfectly, 824 revs per mile.

Irony is hard to perceive in written form.

offset

no way, that wheel with that offset would sit 29mm in closer to the suspension, and you dont have that kind of room, you need roughly an offset of 0 at that size...

Not only should you buy those black wheels, you should also have Chris set you up with an airbag suspension.

I was supposed to have a meeting with him at 11 am today about the car.

Guess who sent me a text message at 4 in the morning, postponing the meeting? I had my iPhone next to the bed, and it woke me up. Tentatively rescheduled for Monday at 2 pm.

The chances that I will need you and Andy to help me move the car next weekend are significantly greater than 50-50.

whats the stock offset? i thought it was around 40mm, 5.5" width, that makes those wheels have 12mm less clearance on the inside, and I'd say that might almost be workable in a 99.

according to here http://jpowell.tripod.com/saab-wheels/, the early bolt pattern cars were +40, 5.5" width, so since those ebay wheels are a 25 offset, 8" wide, 1010 says:

Quote:
Inner Clearance: 12mm LESS (the inside of the wheel to the strut housing)

Outer Position: EXTEND an extra 52mm (position of the outside edge of the wheel)
but like i said, you would need to do some fender cutting, and add some big flares to fit an 8" wheel.
