My favorites are the Tethys, Columbia, and the Zeus

Any size specs for the tethys and zeuses?

Hmm. These don't look like the same wheel to me. Yet they're referred to as such.

Can anyone clear this up?

My car came factory with those.

I have a 1979 (printed in '78) UK 200 series accessories brochure which shows these 2 wheel designs.

The one on the left is the 'Exclusive' and the other the 'GT'.

The brochure also shows the 'Turbine'


And, this wheel which on here is listed as the 'Corona', the brochure lists as the 'Sunburst'.


It's my theory that this wheel only becomes the 'Corona' when fitted with the large centre cap.


Of course, I've been wrong before....

thanks for the info, jonah! the two wheels are now properly identified, and that rare 'turbine' model have been added, never seen that one before.

im gonna wait for a second opinion on the corona, as it may well be named differently in europe than america. any info anyone?

I've also seen 'Corona' listed as 'Sunburst' in brochures from the early '80's.

Thanks for that - are the wheels the same size? ie. 14x5.5?

There are no sizes listed on the brochure, but from the various strands of information on here it seems they are all 14x5.5.

760 sirius wheels are way lighter than virgos, 32lbs with rubber instead of 36.2 only 15lbs wheel alone

The funny thing is being alloy virgo on yoko avid weighs 1lb more than steelie on winter rubber

Anyone know the diameter of the wheel centers on those 4 bolt S40 wheels, I heard they are smaller than the regular 60mm ones on the other wheels?

The left is mounted standard on the early 262 C Bertone including a large chrome hubcap,name unknown
The right is called here in Europe an GLE rim and is also mounted on my '77 264 GLE.

What here in this topic is called a "turbine"rim is called in Holland a GT rim.

Is there a cross reference as to what fits what. Some of these are perfect for my 940 sport estates.

Bad pics, but maybe you get an idea:

17" were called " COMET " regardless of color, 16" were called "METEOR" !

On V70 R AWD 2000´ were 17" called "SATELITE" and 16" were "SOLAR" !

All about Rrrrrr

These came on my 1992 740tic wagon, and they werent on the list, nor have I seen them anywhere. Does anyone know what these are?

edit: nevermind, i found them. 10 spoke Sirius. They were on page 4, must have skipped over them.

The 99 V70R AWD came with a 16" Solar rim, I've only seen them in silver and I'm not aware of a 17" version. They're the 5-spoke with the two grooves on each spoke. I'm not sure what the FWD R's had in 99.

The 2000 V70R AWD came with 16" Satelites, available in silver or anthracite. See post #32 for the anthracite 16"s.
17" Satelites were also available as an accessory (and came on the 00 FWD R's I believe). Again, they were available in both silver and anthracite.
