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.

The S40 until 2004 was an unusual car. It was actually a joint project between Volvo and Mitsubishi, built in the Netherlands. Mitsubishi sold it as the Mitsubishi Carisma in Europe. Thankfully, there wasn't a whole lot of parts on that car that was actually Mitsubishi- sourced, but I'm guessing that the hubs might be.

See: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mitsubishi_Carisma for more info.
