Factory the smallest they've shipped are 16s, only reason you couldn't is because of brake clearance. The Aeros and verts have bigger brakes than the "2.0Ts". What's the bolt pattern on the wheels you're looking to put on.

In my expierence Drew, brake clearance is limited first and foremost by offset. Most of the OG9-3 wheels won't fit for this reason, including the 16''s.

That said I really doubt the 15's will fit.

Go to the accessories page on the SAAB web site and search.

There is one 15" alloy wheel listed for the 9-3 "linear".

I asked a local dealer parts guy and he said it should work for a 2.0T, but not an Aero.

My 04 Linear has 15" wheels but the linear has smaller brakes( I think 288mm) while the Arc and above had something like 308-312mm which I dont think would work with anything smaller than 16".

My thinking is that as of 06 the base Linear engine was gone, so my guess is the smaller brakes are as well.

a 16" rim as for the SS will fit that 2007 car. ie Arc 16" rim etc

If its a 16" from another SAAB(like NG or 9-5), the offset will likely be too small and hit the brake caliper.
