On my 2009 9-3 AERO XWD, I was able to fit 245 40 19 tires. The wheels are 19 x 8.5, +35 offset. There's no rubbing, even with Hirsch Lowering springs.

so I figure you guys would be the ones to ask, you think these would fit on my 02 Aero wagon?

Summer: American Racing Rogue Gloss Black w/ Polished Lip General Exlaim 235/40/18:
General's weren't that good of a tire. Looking for something better for spring.

|9000Andrew||I love the vector, 9-3 Aero rim. Such an awesome looking wheel.|
|12-05-2009 07:33 PM|
|christian900se||Both of those wheel choices work very well with the car, but you are right the SS rims have the edge.|
|12-05-2009 05:54 PM|
Why thank you. Here are a couple more angles to get an idea of how the wheels work with it. This was before removing the pinstripe though, bleh. And excuse the dirt and brake dust.

|Legit||Dude, that makes me want to trade in my '00 aero for an '04|
|12-05-2009 04:32 PM|
|christian900se||That car looks fantastic, the 04 front fascia and the 9-3 rims go perfectly in my opinion.|

I have 17" rims off a 2005 9-3ss Aero on my 2004 9-5 Aero. They sit out from the car a little bit more because they have a different offset and look really great, IMO. They're 42mm offset, where the 9-5's are 49mm I think. Just an option...

nice looking guys
I'm eyeing a set of17x7 with a 42 offset. I want them to peek out just a little butdon't think the offeset will be enough. I guess i'll really find out how they sit when i get them on there.
The only aero's I like are the 3 star with the triangles cut out of each point.
It looks like i might have to look at a wider and less offset in order to get the look I invisioned.
Thanks I think I got a good idea.

I'm also running the 17x8 ET35 BBS RKII's. Absolutely love them.
I've got a set of the 17x7 2002 9-5 Aero rims for sale if you're interested, though.

I still love my bbs rk2s. Just refinished all four of them and painted the centers black. They are 17x8 with a 35 offset which I think is the perfect size for the 9-5 although I have seen 19" and 20" wheels that look extremely good on a 9-5 wagon. I'd say look around on craigslist, here, saabnet and saabcentral and you'll find some good deals on wheels; someone is always selling something different.

I think my RKII's are 17x8" and they poke out nicely from the sides of the aero wagon... I'm not sure the offset, however...

Good to here a little feed back I am thinking 17x7.5 or as wide as possible but..... I have this itch for 18. I am a performance junkie so i doubt I'll be getting the 18's if they are not like a glove like fit. The suspension i plan to run will have a little travel to it. So the rubbing I won't be into.

I was running BBS RK 026 rims that are 18X8 et 42. WIth the car lowered on the Hirsch Eibachs, it did rub a bit on soem humps but not often.
the 17X8 BBS RKIs are fine as are the 17X8 hirshc rims. I love the look of the 18s but the rubbing bothred me so I am selling the BBS iin the for sale thread

|XC99TF00||I'm running the stock rims from the '06 9-5, which are 17x7.5. I think the offset is something like 49, but someone please correct me if that's wrong.|
