When I purchased my Viggen it came with 16-inch SE wheels. I immediately started combing Craigslist ads looking for appropriate 17-inch wheels.
This is what I found, $200 for a set of four. Came from a 9-3SS and looked as if someone used th5em as a work bench in a dirty storage building. Scrapes, deep gouges, filth, etc. There are also within 1 mm offset from the factory Viggen wheels, something to verify with any aftermarket wheels.
After some D-I-Y wheels repair and re-painting with OEM wheel paint, this is what the car looks like wearing the wheels. Personally I think the Y-spoke openings do a good job mimicking the shape of the Viggen logo.
