There is no picture on #74 so are the Dersus or Riguls?

Hey. I'm in the process of maybe taking the 15" wheels (Cetus) 5x108x43 from my sons 850 and putting the 16" wheels (Mimas) 5x108x43 from my S60 on his 850. Based on what I found today I believe that the offset for both is in fact 43mm.

Now I just need to find a 17" wheel with an offset of 43 for my S60.

jks, you're swap should be a direct bolt-up, and as for et43 17" wheels, you shouldnt have much of a problem on the availability end of things.

thanks to all who added, keep em coming!

Normally, the "Lego" wheels (aka Cookie Cutter, etc) came with a cap that looked similar to the early 240 steel rim hubcaps. They also can use the small "V" caps used on the 242GT rims.

Anyway, updated link for the image of the Sirius rims, which were actually on my family's old beige '85 245DL:



Above photo taken by drturbo in June 2000...

Also, the old wheel page created by Evan Reisner: http://home.blarg.net/~volvo242gt/wheels.html

Jumpy,

No problem... I've slowly been updating his page as I've had time... Apparently, the Sirius rims were also known as Nova in some of the older Volvo parts books, then when the 15" 960 slanted spoke rims came out, they also used the name Nova for those. So, maybe referring to the Sirius wheels as both Sirius and "Nova 1.0" would work, and then just calling the 960 rims "Nova 2.0 or new Nova", would work.

Yeah... I suspect that's where all the confusion comes from with respect to the 10-spokers...

Cool, thanks, man...

I tried the 740 chrome 'Flying Saucer' trim from the 10 spokers,
and it fits into the Lego nicely but the tabs don't lock in.
By bending the tabs it would work.
I think the Draco trim is similar with a plastic face.
