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?

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

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

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.

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.
