OK, so i have an 04 R, and am possibly interested in getting some different wheels. I love the Pegs but could go for a change now and again. Aside from Evolve I can't seem to locate anyone that has wheels that will fit on the R. I guess I am looking for 18, or maybe 19 inch. I would also do a light Eibach drop and I guess would need spacers as I already have rubbing on the inside with sharp turns which is a bit lame. <p>Any of you pro's or guys who have gone through this that can shed some light would be greatly appreciated. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/smile.gif" BORDER="0"><p>Thanks Wes<br>2004 Volvo S60 R -- Black, AT, Climate, Premium, Sport Package, 18" Peg Wheels Silver, medium smoke tint all around.

Re: Wheels for an 04 R (jstro)

Yeah their selection is lacking, in some cases they only have 2 or 3 wheels.<p>Thanks!

+1 for the TireRack or IPD if you want different flavored PEGs.<p>What's a "light" Eibach drop, I believe there is only one kind of drop when using Eibachs (ok I being pookey, I know).

Re: Wheels for an 04 R (850arrrsaylikepirate)

Tire rack in some cases doesn't even have a set of 4 which is odd.<p>A "light drop" to me is like 1.something inches as compared to say a 2 inch or more drop which I use to run on my Honda's. I like my R wayy better but the lack of wheel choices is giving me a headache.<p>Thanks!

Re: Wheels for an 04 R (wesleypg)

Thanks for the input fellas. Think I may get a set of 19 inch ViVA "Revolution" Replica Wheel and have them add the R in. The wheel look is perfect for the R and with a slightly larger surface I think i will be happy.<p>Anyone a guru on spacers? I currently rub on the insdie with my 18 inch Pegs, want to handle that when I make the wheel and spring swap.<p>Thanks again for reading and assisting.

The most drop you'll find springs for on these cars is about 1.75 inches. <p>Also the reason for a lack of wheel fitment to these cars is the large clearance needed for the Brembos.

Re: Wheels for an 04 R (chinaonnitrous1)

doesn't this car have the same bolt pattern as most Fords? 5x108. It's not that odd of a bolt pattern really. The big issue is the clearance of the caliper.

Now, that being said, I wouldnt mind a set of 18" Pegs.<p>But those Volutions are def nice!
