Quick answer: you can't. Well you CAN, but you shouldn't.

You'll need a minimum of a 20mm spacer to change bolt pattern, and with a wheel that's got an ET of 20 already, you'll end up with 0 offset. This will make steering rediculous, you'll rub the lips of your fenders, etc.

If you can take care of the fender clearance problems and if you don't mind wrestling a live bear all the time, Dale might still be able to get you some. You'll need to give him the center bore size and the lug size you want to use.

Get an m5 to put them on. Youll be happier with the results (says the ex m5 owner)

Wide wheels, strut suspension with no caster and lots of SAI, and zero offset would make the car want to change direction every time it hits a rut, groove, or bump in the road. I've probably got some 20mm spacers you can stick behind your stock wheels to see the effect if you like, and then you can multiply that by the wider/lower profile tires of the M5 wheels.

Not really. Just find something in the ET-40 and more range so you can use adapters. I take it you're not a fan of any of the FWD Volvo wheels?

How deep are your pockets? $1500 plus shipping and adapters...you're up to $2000 before you have tires mounted...

I don't do spacers much anymore so they are sort of a one-off deal now. I'm going to say $400 for a set of 4. There are places in the US that will do them for less and get them to you quicker than I can. I'm not trying to turn away business...well, I am sort of...I'm working two jobs right now and don't have the time to deal with machine shops or customers. That said, I'm sure I can do something for you if you're not in a huge hurry.
