Does anyone know if these will drop onto a 480?

I'm finding that tracking down these wheels is ever more frustrating. :nuts:

Have managed to find a useful site with most common car wheel sizes listed...and the only one with a bore size of 52.1mm is of course the Volvo "4" series!

Does anyone know if the use of "Spigot Locating Rings" would be acceptable with steel rims and whether they are available in the rare 52.1mm size?

Why oh why would you want to put grungy steel wheels on a 480 instead for alloys? :shock:

The simple answer is to have snow tyres on them! :wink:

Steel wheels have proven to be just too elusive.... have picked up four alloy wheels, identical to mine, with the advantage that two of the tyres are almost new. Not perfect for use with snow tyres but at £30 for all four, quite a good deal really!

Job done!! :D
