195-65-15 should do the trick not to mention getting you closer to the magic 25" Ø.

"Dersus" 740 GLE 14" aluminum wheels for summer/spring/fall, 940 15" steelies and plastic hubcaps for winter.
Wish I had an older car and older wheels, but clean older cars are unobtainium in Indiana.

Are there any Volvo center caps that will fit 740 steel wheels? Looking for more of a classic look.

Yup, the 240 "plate" ones with the centre cap insert fit on the steelies.

Anyone have an idea what these wheels are? 14x6 I think, made in Britain with a 3 letter manufacturer name. Details are fuzzy and the car is in storage. I'll have the car back in about a month and can confirm the specs then.

I just put these on today. The paint that I had applied to them is a bit darker than I thought but I still dig them.

Needs some spacers so that the center caps don't contact the bearing grease caps on the front wheels.
