Going to Ronal this week to get some fly dubs!

Pretty sure I'm going with the R38s a la Mark's wagon (volvorod85)... with a twist!

so here's Mark's wagon
http://www.pbase.com/image/92441633.jpg


Here's one of the more recent shot's of my wagon with the new stance
http://www.pbase.com/765ti/image/91829004.jpg

it's a little lower and settled now (and the driveway's not level anyway) but that's beside the point.

So here's the challenge:
put Mark's R38s on my wagon.... but make them gloss white :oogle:

Looks good, not my style of wheel, but it doesn't look bad. What are the weights, and are they 17x8?

FWIW, your car would look good on Eikers, too bad they're so damn heavy and expensive...

yeah I know, but in addition to them being heavy and overpriced, they're also soft like a wheel of cheese.

the only wheels I really desire are Compomotive MO, but they are too expensive for me right now.

Ronals are pretty sweet, local, and excellent quality. They don't offer anything with much dish, and their other offerings are too modern methinks for the wagon.

edit// the ronals are 17x8 and weigh 26lbs a piece. so pretty heavy anyway.

17x8 MOs....:drool::drool:, except I'd take mine in black.


A set of BBS RGRs might not look too bad, and they are pretty common... so used and cheap ones abound, money saved could go to adapters...

Check the contrast on your monitor, but yeah, it ALMOST looks black in that pic.

If your RG colorblind, this should look green to you (its Audi Nimbus Grey, and I always say its green until I remember its not.)

Yeah, you can pretty much get whatever offset you want out of a wheel (32mm in the rear, 25 up front for a typical VW FWD BBS RGR) but what are you plans for the car?

If you plan on doing alot of autocrossing or taking it to a roadcourse, the added stress is only another liability.

For wheels on a DD, they are fine.

My 15x10s and 15x8s are fine, I have 4 of each, one set for street and another for the track, don't have to worry about adapters ****ting their pants and letting a wheel go flying.

i'm almost positive the ronals need spacers anyways so... don't think that differs much.

My point is, if your going to beat on a set of wheels, the last thing you want is a failure point somewhere in between.

I have seen spacers/adapters fail spectacularly at several autocrosses (mostly GTI's running slicks or T1R/S's and pushing a bit too hard), even "genuine H&R adapters mang". Out of all the wheel-losing catastrophes I've seen, about 80% of the time, it was an adapter giving way (stud sheering out the adapter, breaking studs on the hub, etc).

But, don't let my uninformed opinion sway you one way or another, I've never heard of one failing even on Daytons crumby roads, only through excessive forces.

i can't change the contrast on this screen (Laptop) only brightness

that pic really isn't that good to demonstrate what you mean (the shade given by the buliding puts more of a blue cast across the whole picture as opposed to the actual paint looking green). but yeah i already know what you're talking about.

don't worry, i've had all the tests and my optician confirmed it :-P

yep.... should fit fine, I'd go as big as 235 if you want the extra tread, 215 should fit perfect (7.5 inch wheel, 8.5 inches rim edge to rim edge, 215mm of tread= ~8.5.... should fit).

I can get them in the correct bolt pattern, et40 offset though, so spacers needed. Nobody makes a 5x108 et10-15 anymore...

Ouch, more like adapters... not bad though.

When you need adapters that thick, like I said, might as well go with a more common bolt pattern so your not limited in choice of wheels (though you should be able to run most FWD Volvo bolt patterns now).

Triangles unlimited???

now I'm all confused. I need to replace the wheel studs with longer ones to run ~30mm spacers?

sounds lame and expensive.

Mark is using 30mm spacers on his wagon with his ronals and didn't mention anything about longer wheel studs. Of course he may have just assumed I wasn't a complete idiot, which is a mistake.

yeah you likely might want adapters.

so these adapter dealies I bolt on to the normal wheel studs and then bolt more studs through the wheels and into the adapters?


sounds heavy and expensive. rrrrrrr. aggravating. maybe I should just buy the damn compomotives....

Yeah, you can run longer studs, its just a PITA to find them, FWIW, adapters almost seem like a good idea in a case like yours.

I just dont like spacers (bigger than 10mm) or adapters... but I learned most of what I know about wheels and tires from a circle track guy... if you want to change the track of your car, you should have set of cheap steelies with different backspacing.... etc... blah blah blah.

Studs+Spacers or adapters... about the same cost. What do you want, ultimate choice in wheels, or keep the 108 pcd?

In the end its a wash... ask your brother, see what he says, he knows more than I do....

Adapters... ultimate choice in PCD (5x114.3 is what most wheels use)

H&R, get 5x108 (62mm Volvo centerbore) to 5x114.3 or 5x100 (whatever you find to be a common centerbore/bolt pattern for wheels you like).

Or, contact Dale... 245GTI, he can do what you want to your specs (a set of 25mm for the front and 30 or so for the rear...)

Or... like I said, talk to your brother, I mean, you can't have sibling rivalry anywhere near as bad as me and my sister did... or maybe you can.

Inexpensive............ oops, misread, I are tarded tonight... too much beer.

Well, I dunno, price them out.

You can also get adapters in any dimension from here: http://www.wheeladapter.com/

The site is lulz but the guy is legit. Plenty of people here on TBricks have adapters from him.

so here's my further rantings:

ultimate plans for the car always involved compomotive MOs. I think I'm just going to bite the bullet and get them now so i don't have to worry about wasting money on wheels I don't care for just to be frugal.

I'm going to email the US compomotive guy for a quote. Anyone know what backspacing I should ask for?

I'm going to have to go measure ****, huh? I hate measuring :lol:

You want them the same all the way around?

17x8 4in bs if your really worried about strut clearance.... get long studs and throw some 10-15mm spacers in the rear.

Or, take a carpenters square, measure up 8.5 inches, and however far out you want to go, count the total width of the wheel as 9, or one inch wider than advertised width, (4.5 inches out would be 4.5 inches BS on an 8 inch wheel).

Just go for 4 inches all the way around.... works fine for 15x8s.

so they list a bunch of options for backspacing and offset.

http://www.usacomp.com/Specs/MO/mospecs.htm



anyone know where I can get a backspacing/frontspacing measuring tool?

edit// so 128mm backspacing with 26mm offset should be 102mm or ~4 inches

edit2// more rambling: so a search turned up that 8" et20 (121.6mm) is the most backspacing that will fit on a 240. does that mean my math up there ^ doesn't work out, or did I just befuddle myself again?

thats because ronal sends you the spacers/hubrings and funky nuts that extend inward to meet up and tighten against the hub. it works fine and all, but i need some new nuts cause i have about 3 that are stripped out and no one at ronal will answer my emails....

I bought a metric/inch tape measure,and use a stick across the wheel to measure up to.
Offset is the difference of the front/back to mounting surface measurements. :)

4" back space on an 8" wheel is about -12mm offset. I don't think you're going to want to add spacers to the rear when the tire is already outside of the fender. Try 5" instead.
