Here in the UK Volvo OEM wheels ( desirable ones ) are very expensive and not too plentiful.

I've just bought a couple of sets from late model Jags to hopefully fit on my 940 wagon. They are 5 on 108mm but come with huge backspace. I've got several sets of various thickness spacers to try out.

The main benefit ? They can be bought for pennies. Typically between £75 - £100 for a complete set ( 4 ) with tyres. There is a large choice of styles, widths and diameters.

Also, they look completely different when fitted to a Volvo !

Looks like the 16" Jag wheels will fit with 40mm spacers on the front and 20mm on the back.

Pix as and when the front spacers are made. I have the rears already.

Sorry to bring this up from the dead, but...

I have a 1994 940 wagon. How can I verify which offset I'm set up for? My car currently has the stock steel rims with hubcaps. Thanks for any help!

Ha! I didn't know that and may be acquiring a FWD style 940 wagon in a few months! That explains the pretty wheels on it!

Plenty of adaptors and spacers available now for reasonable money [ good old Chinabay ].

That brings a huge range of possibilities from different manufacturers. Generally you can find popular wheels very cheap where there are a lot of "breakers"- eg Jag, Ford - there is plenty of choice.

All wheels will have the ET marked, but it is the backspace that is the critical dimension. That is from the face of the wheel mounting flange to the hub face mount. Most FWD wide wheels will have plenty of backspace - this is where the spacer selection comes into play.

I've just fitted 8 x 18" MG ZT wheels to my PT Cruiser using 20mm spacers back and front. They fill up the wheel arches nicely - exactly what I was looking for.

I'm after the same look on my 940 wagon with the Jag 16" wheels.

Didn't realise there was a specific section for alternative wheels ..... guess there's only so much info on OEM wheels that 's relevant anyway .

I'm off over there now.

Anyone fit S40 5 lug 11 spoke on a 240? They are both 5x108
I have hubcentric 25mm spacers but the wheel does not fit as it's 1-2mm too small over hub. Also the lug cones need to be a tad bigger for me to be comfortable with them.
Perhaps someone knows of spacers that will accommodate 1/2'x20 stud bolt on to 12mmx1.5 for a perfect fit?

has anyone any idea about these 15" wheels? Came with a 940.

Haven't seen any. Need to powerwash these then I might find something. It is still -20C in here, don't want to mess with water outside.
