Palmer The more I see the X wheels, the more I like them.


I bet the raised part on the spokes of the wheel that is bright silver now, would look neato black.

mcrowley Certainly no cost spared in restoring that one.

I'm definitely liking the real-life pics of the turbo-x. Looks like quite the car.

Cambiocorsa The Turbo X looks nice, but that SPG!!! I want that one soooo much. It's stunning.

The ones with the caps will be the production wheel.

Time was of the essence, apparently.

thats money - exposed vs unexposed

i kind of like both the wheel centercaps (exposed and unexposed).

how funny. i'm sure it's a rat race getting a car like that ready for a show. but did they really think they'd fool all the saab folk gazing at pics on the internetz? i give them bonus points for trying.
11-28-2007 02:11 PM
JA 37 I like both as well, I wonder what the deal is with that?
Nice pix Carl!
11-28-2007 02:09 PM
drewz airflow se I like both rims
11-28-2007 02:04 PM
soccerrplyr i don't care for either.

Jameson OK so this was bothering me.

The wheels, I didnt like the covered lug nuts.

So I saw in one pick exposed lugs and liked the wheels better. Upon examination the drivers side of the car had covered lugs and the passenger side has exposed lugs. I am not crazy, just have a damn good eye.
