Here in the UK Volvo OEM wheels ( desirable ones ) are very expensive and not too plentiful.

I've just bought a couple of sets from late model Jags to hopefully fit on my 940 wagon. They are 5 on 108mm but come with huge backspace. I've got several sets of various thickness spacers to try out.

The main benefit ? They can be bought for pennies. Typically between £75 - £100 for a complete set ( 4 ) with tyres. There is a large choice of styles, widths and diameters.

Also, they look completely different when fitted to a Volvo !

Looks like the 16" Jag wheels will fit with 40mm spacers on the front and 20mm on the back.

Pix as and when the front spacers are made. I have the rears already.

Sorry to bring this up from the dead, but...

I have a 1994 940 wagon. How can I verify which offset I'm set up for? My car currently has the stock steel rims with hubcaps. Thanks for any help!

Ha! I didn't know that and may be acquiring a FWD style 940 wagon in a few months! That explains the pretty wheels on it!
