Will 18" pegasus rims off a V70-R. Dit my 05 S40.

If it helps i know there the right fitment but the tyres on old tryes were 205/50/17 and new are 225/40/18...will they fit. Cars lowered on coilovers. Theres a fair amount of room up abovr the tyre in the arch but not LOADS on the side....

You might not rub. Throw them on and see. You'll need hub rings because of the difference in hub size from the P2 R's (IIRC 65.1mm) and your s40 (63.4mm)




I'm on elevate springs and don't have any rubbing issues. Depends how low your car is with coils

They will fit fine, I highly doubt you will rub, unless you are really slammed. You will need hub rings as previously mentioned.

There's rubbing and rubbing. It depends what you want to live with and you're comfort level.
It probably won't rub on fit. It may rub at times on excess turns or with load in the trunk or passengers in the back.
I'm lowered 1.3" and have 225x40 tires and an offset at 45. My fenders are not rolled and I did rub a few times with passengers in the back.

Do you know what the offset is?

You don't really need th hub rings. Once you get them, you'll see how much of a joke the thickness is. You might as well put napkins instead lol.

Decided to leave them. You all scared me! Haha. Going to get my intercooler 1st then do some research on the wheels and buy them after winter, new ( ebay shop sells them at £400 gbp tyreless)

Pro Sport? That's not an Eibach setup is it? Wish my H&R's went just a little lower. May be low enough, just haven't ran 19's before to see if they tuck in the rear. I'm just barely tucking tire on my 18's.

Huh, I'm half way down in the front on mine and ridin on just springs in the rear, I removed the adjustable perches to go as low as these physically could go. I think you may still be lower than me. Interesting.

Agreed, just need some nicer wheels now! Still thinking the pegasus ones! Just not sure on size and such! Anyone know what offset an s40 is standard?
