Wheels

So I'm just wondering what people have on their ng900's/og9-3's.

And if anyone still has stock's. I ask because I just got my dad's 9-3 and it came with the only saab stock wheels I consider ugly.

Yea these.



Hopefully the insurance company will let us know soon how much we can buy my old 900 back for, and I can get my borbet's off of it. I would sell these then, but I don't know who would wanna buy these.

Haha, I don't absolutely hate the deltas - I'm getting more used to them.

Love the klingons though.

I really love my Borbets, pretty strong and good looking in my opinion.

BBS RK2. Painted "ugly". Bead blasted centers with matte clear, and body color lips.




Centers are sliver, I swear. My camera was screwed up, so the WB is off.



Oh, and I used to have the Gary Fisher wheels.




Oh, and I have the snows on these:

I painted them while I was drunk one night. I think I actually made them more ugly. No small feat considering...

Stock 16" Vikings.



17x8 Hockenheim R's (bent one and was more expensive to buy one than it was to buy the set)



On Klingons



9-3 on 17" offset Double 3-Spokes (this car came with those 15" Deltas but took them off maybe 2.5 hrs later)

Tire rack el cheapo Fox2's. Not the strongest or lightest (but lighter than Klingons), for $99 a wheel, it was hard to pass up. Nice and clean looking too.

Is this just a regular 9-3 SE? Looks "almost" Viggen like with those wheels that look great on it.

Well, I will probably keep them, even if I get the Team Dynamics wheels. I need something for teh daily rubber. I may put them on the Wagon...undecided at this point. I may have some Klingons that need a little love up for sale in the not too distant future.

Thanks! Its actually my 1996 900se, and I wish it looked like a Viggen haha. I had a hard time figuring out which wheels I wanted to go with, and am very happy. The car was basically updated 5 years because of the Borbets in terms of looks.
