Can anyone tell me if a set of 17''/18'' wheels designed for fitting to a classic 9-3 can also be used for a 9-3SS ??

Saw some tasty wheels today.. but want to prolong my investment, so I can use the same wheels from my old car on my future purchase.

Basically, it's a yes, they will fit. However, the common ET for a 9-3 SS is 41, whereas most original classic 9-3/9-5 wheels are ET 49 giving the Sport Sedan a slightly reduced track width. The "old" Hirsch wheels are a perfect fit (I'm not sure whether they are ET41 or 42).
