Default 4 Banded Steel Wheels - 16” 5x108 Staggered + 2 New Tyres

4 X Banded Steel Wheels 16” 5x108 Staggered Volvo Fitment

Fronts are approx. 7.5J wide and the rears are approx. 9J wide.

The rears are fitted with brand new Road Performance 225/50/16 tyres.

Now let me take you on a little emotional journey. These were originally Ford Focus 16" steel wheels. I took them to Usher Engineering in King's Lynn to have them widened and dished as well as the centre's bored out to fit my Volvo 940 turbo wagon.

When I got them back I had them professionally powder coated in white and then attempted to have some tyres fitted. The first one was fine but the second one I came to would not hold air so I sent the remaining three wheels back to Usher Engineering for them to fix any leaks.

Unfortunately the courier was an absolute moron and the edges of all three wheels got chipped in transit.

The good news is that they now all hold air perfectly but the bad news is that three of them will ideally need to be re-painted/coated. One of the rears is in perfect condition, however, having only been test fitted to the car, as you can see in the photo. They would have looked sweet.

They could be fitted as they are or you could try and re-paint just the damaged sections or strip them completely and repaint, it's entirely up to you, but I have since washed my hands of the whole ordeal and decided to get some spacers to change the stud pattern so I have a much wider choice when it comes to wheels.

Collection only from Bourne, near Peterborough.

PM me for photos - too big to post here.

I’d be all over these if I wasn’t selling my car - do you have a price in mind anyway?

You’ll need at least 25mm spacers to make the Ford jobs fit. They’ll also probably be 63.4cb so might need boring out.

Yes but they shorted the back edge and extend the front edge
