SKF bearings are OEM and are supposed to be the top quality bearing part that you can buy. Note however that the only pulley failure that I have had on my 9000 was a replacement SKF Idler Pulley bearing that failed at about 45,000 miles a few years ago while my wife was driving the car. I replaced it with a genuine SAAB part (in a GM bag) made in Italy, didn't change anything else besides the shredded belt, has been fine since. The new part has a kind of formed washer that may serve as a dust shield, but not really sure why its there.
