Question

I don't see them in here but I'm wondering if the Camulus wheels off a xc90 will fit an 850. I can't find any specs for the offset or the center hole.

Were Orions ever available in the US?

I saw a photo of a JDM 945 with them and thought "wow, I'd love to have those wheels"

I don't know if some one posted this already but Here's a Volvo service bulletin showing sizes and paint codes for a lot of the wheels. You could add it into the original post.

I'm trying to wrap my head around all the wheel options right now. My 85 240 wagon would look really good with the Pegasus wheels, I think. Am I understanding this thread correctly, that 7xx series wheels fit without the need for any adaptors/spacers? Which wheels are a direct fit (besides the 2xx series wheels)? There's a lot of talk through these 16 pages, but much of it involves the use of spacers (which I'm not against, but would prefer a direct swap).

yea, any 7xx wheel will fit on a 240. early 9xx wheels will too but I think in 94 they changed the suspension over and it has the FWD offset. running spaces is not a big deal just don't cheep out oin them. its an extra cost but it opens up the choices 100 fold. its a one time investment, some times you can find them used for 250 or so.

Great! Thanks for the info. Getting a new car has a learning curve, but I'm hoping to get everything figured out soon.

I'm curious if you can get different barrels to change offset for RWD and/or stagger.

The Tritons and Propus' vary in a couple ways besides size. The Tritons have 20 spokes and have a "V" between them. The Propus have 18 spokes and are rounded between them.

I know this is an old thread, but someone on the MN Volvo Facebook page alerted me to this. Seems to have most of everything with info and pictures.

Question, and I apologise if it's answered in the previous 15 pages, of which I only read one, skim-style, but:

Rigel wheels, I have 8. BUT, 4 have machine finish fronts (off a UK 760 wagon), and 4 are factory painted (JDM 740 sedan). Which is more common? Was anyone aware of the two styles existing? Surely yes, but... :-)

Given the UK ones are a bit rough, they'll probably all end up painted, though I bet they'd all look better machined.

Machine finish: https://twitter.com/FredCookeNZ/stat...35614894592000 (sorry for crappy photo)






Painted: https://twitter.com/FredCookeNZ/stat...16571412889600






Thoughts? :-)

I see the answer to my question is "yes", they're both listed, and one of the images shows a year range for each, too. Excellent resource :-)
