Sorry, uh, I think it was 2005ish 60 series. I'm not real sure on details.

This is the website I used:
http://www.finishlinewheels.com/VOLV...5/A-70267U78N/

It's not very detailed though. That's why I'm asking if it would fit. I know it's the same bolt pattern. I just don't know what the offset is.

That offset is a bit high. Would likely need some thin spacers to keep from rubbing on the inside.

Well, you should get that worked out, then take some pictures. I really want to see these on a Thunderbird. Or a Cougar since that's what you own. Better some sort of MN12 than none at all.

Could anyone photoshop the rims from the Volvo onto my Thunderbird?







Edit:
It's a Saab, not a Volvo, but it has Volvo R rims on it and that's what's important.

Uh, yeah. I've been saying that since I've owned the car. the tires should probably be replace before winter so they may finally be gone. They are so annoying because they take a lot of work to clean, and if you don't they just make the car look dirty.

That is undoubtedly a Saab 9-5 or 9-3 sedan, but it is unmistakably sporting Volvo R rims.

That's a Saab 9-5 and I think you're right about the wheels; they don't look like any factory Saab wheels I've seen!

Yeah, I just google image searched Volvo Rims and I saw the R rims so I used it not really even looking at the car. If you look closely you can see the R on the one spoke. They are definitely Volvo rims. Anyone good with photoshop? I have it but I'm not too great. I don't have the patience.

I'm not a fan of LS rims, they don't look that sporty to me. And I'm not a fan of chrome either. I like real simple looking ones. I either want these Volvos, or Saleen rims.

One ebay post I saw listed the 18" Volvo rims as having a 46mm offset. that's quite a bit as apposed to what tbird should have isn't it? Which was does offset go? The higher the number the more outward it is or inward?

Apparently these are called volvo pegasus wheels. Not just R series or whatever I've been calling them.

Can anyone determine what size spacer would be used for the 18" wheels? I might pick up a set but I'm not sure what offset/spacer combo would let the rims clear the spindles and give an aggressive stance.

I really wish I could see these on a bird, or at least find someone who owns some and will let me just try them on.

Well, I spent some time on photoshop today. Not real great, but not bad. I'm sure it's not real proportional. I also lowered the car a bit. I think the front looks good, but I think there's something that turned out weird about the back. Maybe just weird angle difference.

The 16's I had on my Taurus looked pretty good

IDK, for some reason they just don't tickle my fancy. THEY'RE NOT UGLY by any means at all! I just think if I were to buy new/different rims I'd choose something else. But still, anyone know what the restrictions on backspacing is? I know I'll need spacers for these Volvos, but I want to know how thick of spacers.

I actually found some Volvos for sale, the guy wants $300 for the set, but they do have some minor curb rash. I think it still sounds fair. They don't come with tires on them.

Look on Volvo forums, they're all over the place. swedespeed.com is one I know of. I have a deal set up with a guy for the 18 inch ones, $400 shipped. But I found a local set so I'm going to check those out first.
