Viggen Replica Wheels

Well, the Rims on my 99 Blue Viggen are shot so I took the plunge and snagged those replicas from E-Bay for 499.

For anyone who may be on the fence or wondering about these...
All I can say is that these are a damn good deal. They are identical in fit and finish and I couldn't be happier. I realized that my suspension wasn't a piece of crap and that my problems were in the rims....

Side by side pics coming soon....

Awesome, thanks. I'm debating on getting these or finding something else I really like. Problem for me is the only thing I'd consider would be something BBS, and that's just way too much money. I know my Viggen rims are the cause of my shaking, because when I have my winter rims on the car is smooth. Plus these are pretty cheap on eBay and look decent. Can't wait for pix, thanks.

I agree... There's not many wheels out there for the Saabs, and personally I think the viggen rims fit the shape and stance of the car very well. Most of the rims I find are little too edgy for something as euro as the 9-3

See the pics below. I haven't swapped them yet, but when I do I'll be posting those side-by-sides.
I think these things look great and the casting looks good, so I think their quality is at least as good as the origionals, as frightening as that may be. If these last me as long as the origionals, I'll be happy because I'll likely not own the car.....
