I asked about them about a year ago and I was told that they wouldn't fit a 2002 9-3 SE. But they wouldn't say why (hole pattern, backspacing, etc). As far as the post above, the Ronal rims I'm looking at have a smoother transition from the spoke to the actual rim. The current crappy SAAB rims have this notch in them that capture all the break dust. I can clean them, but in a short drive, they're packed with dust again. They're starting to pit and again, they're pretty beat. Go to Ronal's site, I'm looking at 17" RT's. But I'm starting to wonder why Tire rack doesn't carry them. Are they cheaply made or something? I think the RT's look awesome and look at the spoke transition to the rim, very smooth won't collect break dust as easily as my rims (you can see my car here www.ciramella.com under RC->real car). I'm also begining to fear what else is going to break if I don't get good rims on my car soon. Ball joint?
