    I'm not sure what wheels these are, but I've seen them on a lot of Carlssons. Maybe a bit too sporty, but I like them more than what you've currently have on (I do love those wheels on the new 9000's though).


    Side question, what were the years of the face-lifts for the 9000? It underwent two, right?

    15 and 16" Versions of those wheels were available. The 15" wheels came on the US Spec 9000 Griffin Edition 9000's circa 1992. I've seen the 16" versions once or twice - they are ubber rare. I have a set of the 15" ones from a junk yarded Griffin model which I ran as my snows on my 1995 9000 previously.

    I could see getting those on the car - but I don't know..... The 16" wheels have their benifits over the 15" wheels....

    As for generations;
    1985-1988 First Generation (Bull Nose or Flat Nose)
    1989-1992 Second Generation (Slant Nose)
    1993-1998 Third Generation (The Lumina Years)

    Ordered the much needed harmonic balancer today - should have that fixed before Carlisle!

    OK - I should have ordered belts when I ordered the pulley! lol Thankfully the local Saab indy I'm friends with down the way had what I needed hanging up with plenty of dust to spare.

    New Pulley on just in time - new serp belt and a/c belt.

    Also installed my NOS Multifunction Turn Signal Switch - nice to have High Beams again!

    Have to look into the cruise control which stopped working. I think there's either a vac leak or a bad pedal switch.

    Going to install the OEM radio before Carlisle too I think. I want the graphic EQ working - perhaps shop for some nice upgraded speakers too.

    Well tonight I decided to swap in a set of used nice aftermarket dash speakers for Carlisle since I have yet to buy some rear 6.5" components. To my surprise when I pulled up the dash speaker grills I found these lurking beneath;
    Alpine SPS-10C2 4" 2-way car speakers at Crutchfield.com

    Some Alpine SPS-10C2 - which are far better then the shot Cerwin Vega's which are cracking in the rear of the car. I had to go online and check them out - not bad for a $50 pair of speakers I guess.... BUT
    I had a pair of these JL's ready to go and they seem to be a bit of an upgrade - at least it sounds like it and looks like it;
    JL Audio TR400-CXi Evolution™ TR Series 4" 2-way car speakers — includes 4"x6" adapter plates at Crutchfield.com

    JL Audio TR400-CXi





    And I need a factory headunit bucket so I can fit my OEM headunit still....
