Uh oh. You asked the wrong person. I'm a filthy wheel whore, though now I try and keep nothing below 16" as that's what my car needs to clear the front brakes.
Is this Volvo wheels only? Or other bolt patterns too?

do you have to modify anything on the Epsilon to fit on a Volvo 240?

In winter the 242 runs a stock set of 15x6 Virgos (easy to clean)

In summer I prefer the 16x7 BBS RA.

Even though I've had the car 10 years those are the only two sets of wheels that have ever been on it.

The Bertone sits on 15x7 Multi-X right now, until I find something more fun.

I have a set of the original 262C wheels too, but one is badly damaged.

The V70R is currently on stock 17" Satelites

I have a set of Tritons and a set of Neptunes in storage waiting for me to care enough to buy tires and throw them on, but I don't have photos of them.
