Bolt pattern is the same IIRC. S40 hub is smaller than that of the S60, so you need to get some spacers to fill the space between your hub and the S60 rim to make sure you don't shear your bolts when you hit a bump.<p>(Basically, just reiterating what was previously stated.)

If they don't have the one you need, they can have it made or order it. Tire rack will give you the rings you need to fit a certain wheel on your hub from what Chrisasdf. I ordered custom wheels so no, it was not a good deal. Custom wheel makers really know how to make your pockets hurt! <IMG SRC="http://media.firevortex.net/icons/custom/green/fv-green-bashhead.gif" BORDER="0">

You don't need a hubcentric ring. If you decide you would like some for the peace of mind, they are rather cheap, but I think you are going to have to go custom. The difference in hub bore size is small (I can't remember off hand). If you torque the wheel down to spec (62lb ft) evenly (read: each lug a bit at a time), with the car in the air, you will be fine. This is relatively easy to do by yourself, as 62 lb ft isn't much, and you can actually hold the wheel while you torque it with the other hand, with maybe a bit of difficulty. Alternatively, have someone come and step on the brake when you are doing the fronts. Use your parking brake for the rear.<p><IMG SRC="http://i28.tinypic.com/w9czfr.jpg" BORDER="0"><p>Someday I'll take good pictures of my car. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/frown.gif" BORDER="0">

I wouldn't drive on Houston, Texas roads over all these pot holes and cracks without hubcentric rings. You're gonna end up cracking or bending the hub of your wheel. That's just my opinion. Nice pegs btw. I also like the mod to your grille! <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://********************/smile/emthup.gif" BORDER="0"> <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://********************/smile/emthup.gif" BORDER="0">

lol you should see the roads here. Small population with a road budget to go along with it, plus as many freeze/thaw cycles we get a year here = terrible roads.<p>I've been ok so far *knock on wood*<p>I also do drive defensively as far as pot holes are concerned. Dodging, slowing down, etc.<p>Edit: Thanks. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/smile.gif" BORDER="0">

Re: (StarmanDXE)

I don't see where on your link it talks about 05+, I only see it for -05, the only newer Volvo I see listed is the XC90. Am I looking in the wrong place? <IMG SRC="http://media.firevortex.net/icons/custom/green/fv-green-help.gif" BORDER="0">

Re: (StarmanDXE)

That one works for me, thanks! I just had my new tires put on yesterday and my tire guy was talking about the best for aftermarket wheels.

Re: (carreragt7)

Ok so lets say your running some R wheels(pegs) and you do not own a torque ?!? What would happen ? <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/confused.gif" BORDER="0">

FV-QR

I don't have a torque wrench and have had multiple sets of wheels that weren't perfect fits, even with the hub rings I had they were 1-2mm off. Never had any problems, trick is to hand tighten them after lowering the car back to the ground.

You tighten them in the air first, then you just finish tightening them on the ground.
