Re: brake upgrade for 2004 9-5 Aero - Saabnet.com Bulletin Board
Yeah, I did the google route but I was hoping that there is somebody here that can offer another viewpoint. The current 308mm on the car works well with the Toyo Proxes but I'm looking to upgrade if its not too much of a PITA.
There is a Swiss company that offers the 345mm brake and 18" rims for the 9-5. But, they don't offer them to US customers.
For the 314mm, yep, have seen the mod pics but I get the impression that it's a lot more "work" to make it work. Then, again, was hoping somebody can offer tips like what spare tire would work and would that fit in the 9-5 trunk? What 17" OEM rim would work? Or, would that require an upgrade to 18" rims? Running cost of the 314mm? Any better than 308mm? What tire combo works well?
