    Thinking of a wheel change - what you got on yours?

    Would love to see different wheels on a 9-5 - both Saab and non-saab alloys.
    Post your pics please.

    I had the Saab Double-Wing 17" wheels on my previous 9-5. I really liked them and now wish I wouldn't have sold them..

    Frank - Love those wheels!

    I've got the stock 5-spoke Aero wheels on mine and I think they look really nice. I'll post a few pics when I'm near a computer (can't put up pics in the mobile site), but I think they're on my profile. I've thought about getting new ones, but I'd probably go for more Saab wheels as opposed to aftermarket. I like the newer 9-3 Aero wheels a lot.

    But then, I probably wouldn't do it, anyway

    I've gone through a couple different styles of factory wheels but have finally settled on the 18" Double Blades (picture 3). I started out with the 5-spoke EVO wheels that came on all the '04/'05 Aeros, then tried out some BBS Rk1s from a 2000 9-5 Aero.

    I like the stock wheels on my '00 9-5 Aero Combi




    For winter I have these SAAB BBS wheels, haven't put them on the car yet so no pictures of them mounted.

    These wheels were standard on most model years 2006+ in the US. I think they looked good on my 2006. Not sure what they are called but they are 17".

    The new owner is not active here but I heard a few months ago the car is still going strong.

    I liked my Silver 05 Aero a bit better, just because I prefer lighter colors. Here she's wearing the standard Aero 5-spokes, right before I sold it to Scott. The 5-spokes are still one of my favorite wheels for the 9-5.
