Volvo wheels help
March 04, 2015 11:51PM
This may be a question better suited for Turbobricks, Swedespeed, IPD, etc, but you guys have a lot of random knowledge, so I'll ask here first. (Ahem, JVL.)

I love classic 8-spoke Minilite style wheels, they're my favorite of all time of all wheels. But I don't want to spend 900 bones to get a set of them for my Volvo, so I'm seeking alternatives.

First question/first photo: Is there a particular name to of the steelies mounted on the dual tone 142? I kinda really like them a lot, especially with that deep offset; that's especially what I'm looking for, roughly a 0+ offset.

Second question/second photo: Slot Mags, love 'em or hate 'em, I think they're cool. Do any exist for Volvo's outside of dang Finland/stateside?

5 on 4.25" isn't a friendly offset to have, it turns out.

See what I mean? Thanks, John! I guess I just searched wrong when I looked on Turbo bricks ten minutes before posting that.

I am still curious about the steelies and slot mags, though. :p

the first wheel is a factory 73-74' 140 steel wheel center with a widened lip.

http://www.stocktonwheel.com/powder_coat.html can put new wide shells on a volvo center

factory 140 steel is 15x5.5 et40 you will want 15x7 et 10-12 or a 15x8 et 23ish

second look like american racing brand,..

almost ant wheel that fits a volvo 240 will fit your 140..
