Hey guys,

I'm trying to get US Wheel to offer wheels with the 5x108/5x4.25 bolt pattern, so us Volvo pervs don't have to be stuck with such a limited range of wheels, and can then avoid using stupid spacers to make wheel options more plentiful.

I figure if we could get one company to do it, maybe more would follow. But if even just one did it, that'd open up a world of options for the Mighty Brick. Sure, they mostly offer steel wheels, but to me, I love the look of steelies, and the price, so it's all wins on that for me.

It seems like the Volvo sleeper world is one that's largely ignored, and it could be a great additional niche market for wheel manufacturers.

What are your thoughts?

Would you mind emailing them and asking for a 5x4.25 bolt pattern wheel if you like this idea as well?

VP Autoparts offers 6" wide steel wheels in the slotted 122/1800 style for both 5 on 108mm and 5 on 4.5" bolt circles. Don't know offhand if they also have the 140 style, which is a bit different.

Thanks for the feedback, Phil, appreciate it. But that wasn't the point, I don't really care for the stock look of old Volvo's, and I'm trying to get a market opened up for more options in wheels for the old bricks. For me, wheels make or break the appearance of a car.

US Wheels offers some classic (in the not-stock sense of the word) wheels that would look good on most Volvo's in my opinion, and the best part is they're not that expensive. Sure, they're steel, but with all the options they have, it seems like a great place to start for getting a better wheel market opened up for the pitifully rare 5x108 bolt pattern.
