Default Wheel Lug Compatibility

Have a 94 850 and 98 V70

Can anyone tell me what other wheel lug patterns are compatible? Looging on Craigslist for winter tires/wheels and there are alot out there for S60/S80 etc.

Thanks,
Chris

They're all 5x108, just depends on the offset and I dunno if the bore size is different between the cars or not.

I seem to remember that the 94's had a 4 lug hub. If that is the case then you wouldn't be able to switch wheels. If they are both 5 x 108 then fitting would not be a problem. Just try to keep the offset similar.

I would suggest going to a junk yard that has volvo's and get a set of wheels there. Then get some winter tires for them. They have some good ALL SEASON tire out now that may work for you as well.

I can remember a while back that iPd or some company sold some studded snow belts that were easy to put on and take off for those bad snow days.

93's were 4 lug, then 94's and up were the 5x108

Pretty much every Volvo ever made was a 5x108 with the exception of the 93 Volvo 850. Also, all the FWD cars and the Volvo 960 have the same offset.
