Question Pegasus [R rims] on V40.. ever done before?

Hi guys,

I'm new to the forum. I used to drive a Dutch made V40 2.0T from '01 years ago as a company car. Most likely going to order a new Belgian made V40 again later this year.
I'd like to know if someone already tried fitting original Volvo R Pegasus rims onto a V40??
As far as I can tell the boldpattern and hub size are the same between the V40 and the S60/V70. Rim width and ET might be different though.

I think they would look absolutely badass on a Rebel blue Rdesign!
Anyone any input..

These are them: http://volvovelgen.com/upload/images...igineel(2).jpg

Cheers.

They look easy to clean, which is a point in their favour.

If boltpattern and hub diameter are the same, both the 8x18 and the 7,5x18 should fit without a problem. The 8x18 has an ET of 49 so you might need some spacers to clear the suspension and brakes but otherwise it should work fine.

According to what the internet is telling me these should be the spec's:

V40
- Midir
Size: 7.5J x 18
PCD: 5x108
Bore: 63.4
ET: 52,5
All 16" and 17" rims have an ET of 50

V70R - Pegasus
Size: 8J x 18
PCD: 5x108
Bore: 65.1
ET: 46

This would mean a 0.85mm spacer for the centre hub and a ~5mm spacer to compensate for the offset...

Does anyone have any pictures of this rim under a V40? I searched far and deep, but no luck.

Hi Theoscat,
Thanks for the pic! Looks as expected, nice!
How's the ride? Was it a straight bolt-on or some modification needed?

another 0.85mm spacer for the centre bore is needed as expected,
the offset for front wheel is nice, and i am adding a 15mm spacer to the rear later next month. hope it helps!
