18" Borbet Wheels & C70 Windblocker F/S

I have traded my C70 and need to sell my 18" wheels and windblocker, so here goes...<p><A HREF="http://forums.swedespeed.com/zerothread?id=99128" TARGET="_blank">http://forums.swedespeed.com/zerothread?id=99128</A><p>The tires are worn badly...I had some alignment issues <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/biggrin.gif" BORDER="0"> but the rear pair are still usable for a short time. The rims are perfect...no rash, etc. I would prefer to do this locally and not deal with shipping, but let's see where we end up with that. I would like to get $400+shipping for the wheels (18x8.5 - 40mm offset) They fit close at the strut in the front, but there was no rubbing front or rear, even with the Koni/Eibach kit. The blocker is factory Volvo and is in perfect shape (includes the storage bag). $300+ shipping for the blocker. If you are local to Raleigh, NC I am willing to drive a little to deliver!<p><IMG SRC="http://i199.photobucket.com/albums/aa269/NC244GLT/Borbet18.jpg" BORDER="0">

I don't think they will fit on an R. I think it would be a trial thing. If you have a measurement of a wheel that is a known fit, I would be glad to check these for you.<p>The replacement vehicle is a 2004 Lexus LS430 UL. It's a pretty nice car...loaded up and it's Flint Mica (dark metallic grey) with black leather.

Re: (NC244GLT)

They just might - the Pegs are ET46 and the Axis Hiros/Evolve H5's are ET40 and they fit the R...<p>Centerbore might be different - the R centerbore is 65.1...

Re: 18" Borbet Wheels & C70 Windblocker F/S (kalvin)

I had thes on my 97 850R. The fronts were just a hair past the edge of the fender. They are nice loking rims on the car. I did not really like the way the fronts were out to the fender though. I have since had my volans refinshed and sold the borbets.

If someone is interested, I can dismount the tires to ship the wheels (since they are worn anyway). I am also willing to drive these up to 200 miles one way from Raleigh! Make me an offer! I would also consider trades for 240 lowering springs/Billy HD's!!

Re: fitting/centerbore/bolt

HI, I'm interested. But as someone pointed out earlier. What is the centerbore of these rims? <p>I have a S60R.<p>I'm assuming bolt pattern is the same for S60 & C70? 5x108?<p>Thanks

Re: 18" Borbet Wheels & C70 Windblocker F/S (NC244GLT)

I still have these! Someone needs a set of wheels for their Volvo! I think thy fit most (probably not the "R" cars due to brake issues) and know thy fit a C70 perfectly. If you are nearby i would be happy to deliver these....wife sas no new parts for the '84 244 until these are gone, so make me an offer!<p>I also have the windblocker still....in the bag, factory part...works great!<p>
