18x8" Volvo S60 "Pegasus" wheels on MN12?
I've done some looking for bigger wheels and tires (I really REALLY need new tires, my winter tires can't take much more of the heat here before I trash them). I got offered by a member of a car club I am part of to buy his Volvo S60 "Pegasus" style wheels. They have the following dimensions...
The stock 15x6.5" wheels I have on my 94 Cougar have the following dimensions...
Are my calculations on these two wheels correct? The higher offset # means the mounting face of the wheels that contact the rotor are closer to the outboard edge of the wheel on the Volvos right? So this would make the outer rim of the wheel fit closer to the center of the car, and the inboard rim would obviously sit much further inward, correct?
And what would I want to look into for making the Volvo wheels fit my car? I did a little forum thread searching on TCCoA and found a few people have looked at the Pegasus wheels before, and it seems like they were suggested to get some spacers to make it fit correct. I would want 7mm wheel spacers, as well as hub centric rings if the bore of the Volvo wheels are larger than my stock wheels, right?
The deal is with brand new, never used summer performance 225/45/18 tires. The package would be for between $450 and $600 depending on how far I drive.
Just looking at what I would have to go through to have some bigger wheels and wider tires.
