C70 Propus hub sizes Question

Post by diplomaticm3 »

Hi folks...I can’t find a confirmation on this so I figured I’d ask the experts.

Volvo Propus wheels...are they all 65.1 center bore / hub size? Including the 2001-04 models?

Just trying to confirm if any Propus / Propus C’s came in the ford hub size (63.4).

Thanks in advance.

They are all 65.1.

I’m quite familiar with them :wink:

You could get a set of hub centric wheel centers to be able to fit the 65.1mm to a 63.4mm hub long as the pitch of the bolt holes are correct. I think they are as I once bought a set of wheels that were 63.5mm centers and recall they fitted the hub pattern but of course would not fit over the hub centers. Seller said they were from a 07 P2 but were from an 08 P3.

As an engineer I hate spacers, they're the enemy as far as kingpin inclination goes. Back on topic, all P80s were 65.1, as dizzy confirmed.

My understanding is that it’s quite easy to get earlier Volvo wheels onto the Ford-based cars as you can just utilize hubcentric rings to correct the bore, just as Neil noted.

Going the other way, OTOH, requires either machining the wheels or spacers which is probably not worth it.
