  • Saab 9-5 wheels on Insignia A

    Hi Everyone,

    Sorry if this has been asked before, couldn't find it if it has.

    I'm looking at getting a set of Saab 9-5 wheels for my car, they're 7x17. The offset is ET49, would these be a struggle to fit my car or should I look at something else? Most alloys I am finding are 18" and due to the absolute state of our roads in SW Ireland, it would just be easier and cheaper to have 17s.

    Thanks

    Which 9-5 version are you refuring to the YS 3 G (2010 TO 2012 )
    OR THE YS 3 E (1997 TO 2010)
    för starter the g virant is heavily based on the Insignia so running Gear is interchangable .
    The early is based on Vectra running gear and isn't as interchangable.

      Thanks for the information, I've just had a look and they're off a 2006 model so no good then. I'll keep looking.

        Before changing alloys have you looked at different tyre sizes to give you a higher side wall for better alloy protection. A few who run 20’s on here have done this

          I hadn't even thought of that, I'll keep that in mind when looking. Thanks

            Like just for example if yours are 245/45R18. You could go to a 245/55. This gives you a higher side wall but does change speedo reading by about 6%

              Hello, After gathering some information from this wonderful site regarding sidewalls I was wondering what are the chances of replacing my 20 inch rims with 18 inch rims, reason being i'm getting fed up with replacing the tyres several times a year. We've been looking at replacing our car for something more durable


              have a read through this, different sizes but principle is the same
