5x108mm. I wish it was 5x100mm!! The only car I can think of with the same bolt pattern is Ferrari.<P>Most VW's use 5x100, BMW has 5x120, MB has 5x112, and Porsche uses 5x130. I know those makes probably use other bolt patterns too, but those are common ones.<P>

A lot of wheels can be custom drilled for you, just make sure the offset is correct.<P> <BLOCKQUOTE><font size="1" face="Verdana, Arial">quote:</font><HR>Originally posted by towerymt:<BR><B>5x108mm.

In inches, that equates to 4 1/4" (4.25"). Why Volvo used the 4 1/2" (4.5") bolt pattern for soooo many years and then all of a sudden changed one day is a mystery to me, as is why they went from using strictly standard bolts/nuts/screw/etc. up until the 140 series when everything changed to metric......<P>-he who stacks pork

That doesn't make much sense either when all, or nearly all other hardware is metric. The 700 series and later uses metric lugs, but then with the 850 they changed to bolts instead of studs.<P>
