Anybody happen to know all the measurements of the factory rims so I can look around for some sftermarket 18's . I really don't want to end up with something that sorta fits.

Yup you got it right. Not too much to pick from with that pattern. I have a guy that makes wheel adapters if you want it.


P.S. yo what’s up with you site??? what’s it supposed to be a guessing site to were to click???

my site is a work in progress... but most pages are rollover images, and when you rollover the right spot you should know it. :wink:

now, about those wheel adapters. I sorta thought of that, could I have them made so my saab would work like a late model VW? because thats easy to shop for :) Or lets say any common lug pattern, how would it affect the offset? I know it would depend on the thickness on the spacer. but wouldn't that be almost as unusual as the saab lug pattern? Finally has anyone actually used adapters on their saab?

I was thinking about using adapaters as well, but the find a rim with that kind of an offset is more difficult than it seems.

So if a 9-5 has a 49mm offset stock. And if I were to get adapters that are about 25mm thick (because thats how they come) I would need a wheel with a 74 mm offset... or am I doing the math wrong, and I would need a wheel with a 24 mm offset?

Careful...its not just the bolt pattern but also the center bore as well. Any 5x110 ET 40mm rim will not work. It has to be a Saab specific application.
