wobble bolts would work fine. but the hubs are different, and you cant go from big(saab) to small(vw/audi) thru an adapter, at least i dont think you can(someone correct em if im wrong).

meaning youd have to bore them by a guy in a machine shop.

itd be a lot of work, id keep looking for something for a volvo, cause they have a 5x108 pattern adn jsut wobble bolts are needed i believe.

liketheword I think it may look to ricerish with that setup. All black would be ok.

Do you have pics of the car now? To be sure.

AutoXer01 ok try this link...http://www.tirerack.com/wheels/Wheel...w%2FRed+Stripe

Also, does anyone know where to get wheel adapters for a different offset?

This is, of course, besides the point. Your car looks pretty awesome as is..

New wheels

I have a steel grey aero and I'm thinking about these rims. The only thing I'm not so sure about is the red line, but I will have red calipers and I think it may go well with having tinted windows too.

any comments??
