Volvo 740 Wheels!

Postby Volvo4251 » Fri Dec 31, 2010 12:33 am

Hi All,


I have the steel wheel/plastic 15 inch cover combo on my 740 GL. All of the wheels are scratched up and honestly a perfect pain in the butt to clean (they have A LOT of spokes). I need to know where (online) anyone would suggest to look at sets of 4 OEM wheels. In a perfect world I am desiring to get away from the steel/plastic combination and hoping to get some alloy wheels that don't cost an arm and a leg.

Thanks, Max.
Drive Safely.

Have you tried doing a search of junkyards? www.car-part.com is a good place to start. There should be several junkyards listed on this site in your area.

I have the set of 15 inch alloys that would fit from my V-90 $150 + what ever it costs to ship.

Aren't these wheels going to require spacers? What is the offset?

Looks like they may as it looks like the V-90 may have the Front wheel drive offset. I had no idea the V-90 may be a different offset than my 740 till now!
I bought my Voxx set from discount tire direct so I will check with them on Monday. The local wheel guys don't know squat on Volvo's!
