Default Are these 740 wheels?

Hi guys, can you help me identify the wheels in the pic? Also I like how the rear ones have been widened. How do I find someone who can do that for me? I'm in Ft. Worth.

a lot of wheel shops can widen wheels...i dont know if these steelies are oem, but they do look amazing and it is totally feasible.

do a search on the WWW on who could resize wheels for you in the area.

may be cheaper to get custom steel wheels made up, for what it's worth

Look like the widened s80's...I remember there was a pic of someone with a green 240 who had wheels like that from an s80 widened except they were silver. They look awesome.

The fronts on the original look like the Volvo steelies I have for a 740. They ride on my 245 in the winter with crappy snow tires.

Mine are only 15" though.

They're late 740/940 15x6" steelies, the rears are obviously widened a lot.



That car is a real beast.

I love steelies on a hot car, it's a big trend here in Australia among modified car people, and has been for a long time. I've just recently bought two sets of those 740/940 rims, for use on my Volvo's.
