Weren't they the same guys who came out with the fibreglass hardtop for the GM900/9-3 convertible?

I should have phrased that better, the black one needs to be killed with fire. I like the volvo wheels on the other one.

I wish I knew where more photos of the white one was. I did a search for white viggen and found it. I love that look. (it's a 900, but with Viggen kit)

I absolutely think those 18" pegasus wheels are the best looking wheels on a Viggen. Just matches the style perfectly...

I like the white. I think the best wheels for a Viggen are Viggen Rims...period. Saab nailed it on the style, just not the structure.

I think Viggen rims are the worst Ive seen on a Viggen.

Aside from the wheels that obviously should never have been produced of course. Viggens need more spokes or chunkier spokes.

I sorta like the Viggen rims, but if they came on the car, i would replace them with something else immediately and sell the Viggen rims. So i was pleasantly surprised when I got my Viggen it had the 9-5 wheels. Thicker spokes and a lot stronger.

Viggen rims have the same smooth styling that follows the style of curves the Viggens had in my opinion. I don't think that pegasus or 9-5 rims necessarily follow the body of a 9-3. I'm not saying they're bad at all. They look great! I just think Viggen rims fit the style the Viggen design was based on.

Pegs look sick on Viggens. Those, twin 3-spokes and RKI's, are my favorite on them.
