Default aftermarket brands for 240 wheels

I'm sure this subject has come up before but I am trying to put a list of wheel options that play nice with 240 Volvo's. Has anybody had much success with Rotiform wheels I thought I saw a few 5x108 options?

These are the nicest wheels that would be direct fit that I know of.

You need spacers to run many of the 5x108 wheels due to the offset.

look at some of this stuff and come back to this thread if you need to, or change that search a bit, this is a question that has been beaten to death

Back in the day OZ, MSW, Minilite, Fittipaldi, Fondmetal Etc & IPD used to do wheels for the RWD Volvos, not enough demand anymore but some of those interesting wheels are still around if you're a persistant hunter or just plain lucky.

Thankfully you are in a popular volvo area. So if you take you time and be patient and keep looking like Ken suggests. You will find some of the older wheels for sale.

I'm always surprised at how light the factory alloy wheels are. Hydras on a 240 look good. Happy shopping.

Also depends on your budget. Most mid-high end brands do custom offset and bolt pattern. It just costs $500+ per wheel.

We used to have a Bertone on the front page. I think that had custom HRE wheels on it.

Or just buy spacers and have access to thousands of FWD wheels
