Wheels maketh the car – Inca style

A few weeks ago I was able to forward an offer from Saab Australia on some new-generation Inca wheels and I’m pleased to report that a friend of mine in Sydney took advantage of the offer.
Hawkeye has a Snow Silver 2008 Saab 9-3 sedan, the first BioPower ordered in Australia, and he’s been keen on the new Incas since the first time he saw them. They were a bit beyond the budget when he ordered his new car, but the discounted ofer via Saab Australia made them irresistable.
Here are his former wheels, which looked pretty slick….

And here are the new Incas, which he had fitted last week.

Like Saab’s original Incas, see below, these new ones tend to polarise opinion. I think they look good on some colors but I wonder how they’d look on others. I’ve seen them on a red SportCombi, which looked pretty good.
On Snow Silver, I think they look downright fantastic. Almost fururistic.

Hawkeye’s now got a perfect set of wheels for sale if anyone’s interested. You’d need to collect them or freight them from Sydney, of course.
They’re all in perfect condition as Hawkeye’s the most fastidious vehicle owner I think I’ve ever seen. His car won the Saab Car Club of Australia national concourse back at Easter this year.

Here are the original Saab Incas, as seen on a Sonett II at the SOC last weekend. I’ve never seen them on a Sonett before. They were originally made for the Saab 99Turbo and appeared on some early 900 Turbos as well.
