I had a set of 16x8 ET0 BBS E501 that came with Ferrari caps and were 5x108, so I assume they came off a Ferrari. The centerbore was 67mm (or 67.1), so +2mm over the Volvo 65.1mm. But the depth of...

13mm of course. '90+ blocks, always. Junkyard B230F with 160-190k always looked nice, whereas a B230FT with the same mileage had more wear on the bores. If you can find a nice '93+, even better.

It should be closer to 4.16-4.29". A 6" wheel will measure close to 7" overall width. 0mm offset would yield ~3.5" backspacing. Add 20mm offset offset of a Virgo, and it's around 4.25"...
