I am looking for for 4 wheels for a 62 pv544. I would prefer stock, but if anyone knows of others that will fit please let me know. Also are there any fitment issues? It is my understanding that 5x4.5 is the bolt pattern?

Thanks George! I am trying to find out what these came off of. Does any one know what the bolt pattern for my 62 544 is? 5x4.5 or 5x5.5

No the green one is a computer generated 544 that i found that some designer had made. I am wanting to do mine some what like that. I am trying to figure out the best way to lower it. I have an ipd front sway bar that i bought 11 years ago and am going to get a rear. Not really wanting to cut the springs to lower it, but can not find progressive lowering springs. For that matter i can not even find shocks for the front. <p>So I guess i should post some specs on what my volvo is. It has a b-20 with a m-41. Dual down pipe. The rest of the exhast is 2.5" with a cherry bomb muffler. I am going to change it to side exhaust. Right behind the right front fender. Seems like we (me and my dad) lowered the gears in the rear end. Not sure though. Shaved port and polished head with a street cam. Dual hs6 carbs. 15 in. chrome wagon wheel wheels with 50 series tires. I want to change to a regular steel wheel, does not matter if it is volvo or not. I think old ford or ranger truck wheels will work. Thin put salt flat spun caps or baby moon caps on the wheels with wide white wall tires. I am pulling all the chrome off except the sparows and door handles. <p>Before everyone falls out of there chair about what i am doing I own a 62 544 that is bone stock in dry storage. I used to own 6 544's. This was my first car that i owned and drove when i was 16. It has been parked out side for 11 years. Was rear ended before i parked it. Not to bad but sure is there. Rust through on lower passenger rocker. Pans are still good. Fenders etc. Oh yeah bumpers are coming off. All the holes will be smoothed and filled. <p>I am going to get it today. That is why i am ramblining on. I have not been able to work on it for 11 years cause of school and work and am now laided off with a 2 grand to start the build with. I almost sold it a week ago to one of my buddies and another friend asked me what the hell i was doing. Saying you would be sick if you had to see that car all the time and was not yours. He was right! Anyway off to get the car!!!!<p>Doug Schultz/ratroddoug/Ramblin Man
