    Double 3 spokes

    OK, so they were a long time coming, but here they are.

    As a few of you may know, I picked up my first double 3 spoke wheel at SOC09.
    It was sitting all by itself in the parts tent.
    Having been able to scope some of the things out ahead of time and being first in line, I was able to take my pick.
    The double 3 spoke is my favourite Saab wheel and without question, my favourite wheel on the 9-5 Aero SportCombi.

    At SOC10, there were 3 more of them for sale.
    I neither had the chance to check things out ahead of time, nor was I first in line this year.
    But the wheels were there, almost like they were brought in just for me.

    Needless to say, I couldn't say no.
    So, I brought them home.
    There the 4 brand new wheels sat until I had the chance to put new rubber on them.
    On went a set of Michelin Pilot Sport A/S+ tires, my favourite tire for many reasons.

    I just spent the last 90 minutes giving the car a good washing (something I haven't done since I installed the wheels & tires).
    A little tire dressing and a quick coat of wax on the hood and I thought, what better time to take some pics (and not much time left before the winter set go on).

    I thought I remember you saying you had one of certain wheel type and were looking for it's three companions, but I never remember you saying you got them. They look great!

    Very, very nice!

    It took a while to find them all but it was definitely worth the wait. The only thing I am not so happy with is... that I like them more than my double-wing wheels. But only by a slight margin.
