g96nt I'm bored @ work, so I'm updating posts.

I ended up winning a set of the saab accessory BBS snow wheels/tires on Ebay for ~$100, but the seller went-ahead and sold them locally. (Doucher)

After some searching, I found another listing in NJ for a set of elbrus I04 with 3k-mile old general altimax arctics. I figure, I'll drive the wagon through this winter on the snows, and then toss the wheels on the 9-3. they're 16x7.5 so they should clear the aero brakes, and not cause problems with the 9-3 when spring comes.

Cark I thought it was all 16's other than the tally/super areo style wheels fit?

Never tried 15's myself, but knowing how tight the clearance is on my 16's, I'd say there's no way.

turbojohnny yeah, no 15" wheels, but some 16's do fit.

Saabeh I dont think any 15" fits. Only some 16's do.

15" wheels over viggen/aero brakes?

I thought I remembered reading that 15" wheels don't fit over the aero brakes. Is that a thing?
Can I toss these 15" steelies with all-seasons from the 9-3 on the 9-5 for the winter?
