A Linear has 15" rims as standard anyway. However, Saab did change the offset parameters on the Sports Sedan new style of 9-3 like you have. While the 2003 was the first year for this model, the convertible stayed on the old platform. So I believe these rims are for an earlier NG900 / 9-3 or 9-5. As a result, they will most likely fit and function. But in Saab's opinion, the offset is important and you should use 2003- 9-3 steel rims which Saab produces and sells through the dealer network, in fact, they have had a "winter tire program" for the past 20 years or so... So your decision. I'd definately see what the original dealer of your car would do for you in getting a set of snowtires.
