I am so far from my 242 looking good, but I MIGHT be making a step in the right direction.

I looked at a set of those for my 740 before going with Voxxs instead. Those aren't bad at all but I liked the 5 spoke design better.

How about on 760?

I like them, what size? I think if they are atleast 15's its a step in the right direction if the price is good.

Personally, I like the 5 spokes better.

I got some dirt cheap Chinese 5 spokes for mine. I thought Peggies looked a bit harsh on the softly rounded 240 shape, they generally only look great if the car itself has been worked over visually some. These have some subtle curves and look better (IMO) on a more stock 240:

Sport Edition D3. Last time I checked about $75 a wheel.

needs moar deep dish, and i think they look like a star which isnt good for a rim, IMHO.

what size are those anyway?

They look better than stock rusty steelies, but if you are going to spend the $$, get what you want the first time.

IMO...3 spoke and 6 spoke wheels shouldn't exist. 6 spoke looks like they should be on a 3/4 ton truck with an extra lug.

Get some Feikers, something 16 or 17 with dish. I'd LOVE to see some starion wheels on a Volvo though.

16x7, 16x8 and some 16x9, 5x100. Not too sure on the offset, but they are pretty easy to find and fit the 80s look. Probably would look better on a 700 though.

Thanks guys

Always loved the Starion wheels.. in fact there's a red starion like that not too far from here. :badboy:

Of course, I want to steal the fender flares too.

i just think 240s look better with some sort of deep dish, weather it be 1 inch or 4inches.

16'' rim is good. then slam the bitch.

Call up Diamond and order some 15x10s for the rear and 15x8s for the front, should be able to get them all for under 400 bucks (4 15x10s was 413 w/shipping included).

Tomorrow, I'll have pics of my 15x10s on a 240, see how well they fit (really, I don't think youll need to flare the fenders at all if you get them with 5 inch backspacing).

If you want wheels, just ask... I'm sure we can arrange something.

I'll cut you a deal on Tethys + spacers.

I dunno. Some wheels/tires for my car to sit on + cash and the Tethys set up can be yours.

Basically, doon't spend money on those crappy wheels.

how much cash.
I have some of the 760 dinner-plate wheels that would look fantastic on any volvo (tee hee) and will have some virgos with new(ish?) tires on them, nice virgos.

We shall see, maybe ill just keep the virgos and not have traction
