17" Vikings?

So I was browsing a Sweedish site the other night and I stumbled across a NG900 that looked to have 17" Vikings on it and it looked SICK. In my infinate wisdome, I didnt bookmark the page or save the photo. They may have been 16's but Im damn sure they were bigger than my Vikings.

Does anyone know about this? Do these monsters exist? Where?

Maybe it was a photoshop? I don't think SAAB, or ronal, or fondmetal whichever company it was that actually made them had a 17" version, unless it was a custom or a one-off.

I second what JK9000s said..
I've always thought it would be cool to have Aero's or Super Aeros in 17" too..

The concept car that SAAB made in 1992 as a preview to what the 9000 Aero would be like had 17" super aeros, they were the only set ever made as far as I know. I'll try to find a photo of that car...

Bling Bling! 17" Super Aeros...I'd like a set, or THE set



And DAMN that car looks clean, and kinda good in the dark redish color (that color has grown on me since my 1993 CDE was that color).

some dudes on the swedish saab turbo club forum were looking into getting 17 and or 18 inch super aeros custom made, like a group buy. you might want to search around there it is hard to understand and search without knowing swedish... I just stumbled upon it and forgot to bookmark it.

That would be lovely...but probably expensive to ship from Sweden, and probably just expensive overall

I know...there is another photo of it in the SAAB museum, but I couldn't find it for the life of me. It is a real car, but it looks like they cleaned it and polished it so well that it appears fake . And the fact that they took it in front of an all white backdrop doesn't help.

Also, I just noticed that it's RHD...I wonder why SAAB would have made the concept car in RHD , and the text on the car is all facing the right direction so it isn't just a flipped photo.
