Default Will c30 wheels fit on my 92 240?

Hey everyone newbie,

I just purchased a 1992 240 sedan in great shape with only 100000 miles. Looking to put snow tires on. I have 225,45r17 blizzaks, do you think I could mount them on c30 wheels and would they fit on the car?

let me know thanks

nope, sorry. While the RWDs may have the same bolt pattern the FWD and AWD cars use a different offset. Typically the RWDs are ET25 and the FWDs are ET50 (give or take). That'll move the centerline of the rim (and edges) inward about 1 inch when you mount on the 240.

17" wheels with /45 tires will also give your 240 a nasty harsh ride. its suspension was optimized for the stock 14" wheels with /70 tires.

if they are indeed ET50, you /could/ use 25mm spacers to bring them back out, but spacers are a pain to deal with when you mount/unmount the rims from the car.

The wheels are only $75 for the 4. One rim is bent a little and still hold air, ect. Are there any other models you recommend looking for?

the only direct fit wheels will be 240, 740, 940, 760 and pre-facelift 960 (I think the facelift was in 1993 or 1994?) the 240 wheels are mostly 14", the 740/940 ones mostly 15, which an occasional 16" such as the Hydra (used on select turbos).
