Does anyone know if these rims fit? It is the same bolt pattern 4×114.3. I just wanted to know if the middle part (or whatever the center hole is called) is wide enough to fit. I bought some rims off an old Hyundai Elantra awhile ago and it was the same pattern but I had to hone them out a little to slide on. So just wanted to see if anyone has used the Volvos or not. Thanks

It's called center bore and yes they fit. A member on here has done it. Look up Tom's turbo garage on YouTube and find his Galant build. Wheels and tires will be one of the videos if I remember correctly.

The S40/V40 rims are a perfect fit because they are made for Mitsubishi hubs to begin with. The 1st gen S40/V40 is a Mitsubishi Carisma (European version of the Lancer/Mirage) under the skin.

To be honest the Carisma was a big flop. Why they named something with dreary looks and boring performance a 'Carisma', I will never know.

The Carisma went on to form the basis of the Proton Waja where one model was even sold with the FTO's 6A12 DOHC V6 engine.

Are they 4x114.3mm PCD? If so will be a lesser model first gen S40/V40. I think the only other 4 lug Volvos were the 300 / 400 / 480 series which I didn't think made it to the US? They are 4x100mm PCD anyway.

They can only be from a first gen S40/V40 then.
