Sure, you can use 16" /50 or 17"/40 or 18"/30 (ouch!! or even a 20" rim without tire) ... if you use the right offset "insertion depth" of the rim. Normally 27mm is to little on the 900 rear but there were only SAAB 16" rims of the 9000 available and those had 27mm. My Saab mechanic told me that they modified (enlarged) the bump stop on the rear of those cars that much (took some of the metal spacers) but some cars never stopped scrubbing...
