Very nice wheel. > proper performance rim, not just looks but weight and strength too. I think they might actually be Mille Miglia (Were they the company that made the thin five spoke Viggen wheels?). There are no markings on the wheel and I can't find them in Azev's catalogue. The other thought was Borbet, but no joy there and OZ (there were similar wheels made by OZ for Lotus a few years ago) don't seem to show anything like them. This is a close-up: <http://www.saabphotos.com/gallery/albums/Orca_Super_Star/20_09_06_1121.jpg> ... Compared to the Mille Miglia star: <http://www.saabphotos.com/gallery/albums/Orca_Super_Star/Miglia_1000_Star.j pg> There was a wheel on the old Audi 80 that looked similar, but was six spoke: <http://www.saabphotos.com/gallery/albums/Orca_Super_Star/Audi_Six_Spoke_Whe els_003.jpg> ... Here's showing off the "dish": <http://www.saabphotos.com/gallery/albums/Orca_Super_Star/DSCF3616.sized.jpg > If anyone recognises the wheel, I'd love to hear. I really like them. At 15", they have a kind of "Mustang" look to them, especially with big 195/65 ratio tyres straight off a 9000. I'll be running 205/55 or perhaps 225/(50?) when they're ready for some track tyres.
