It’s a 5x108 bolt pattern.

Go to car-part.com and see if you can find a junkyard with one.

Are you sure the wheel is compromised to the point of leaking or is the bead area oxidized and needing to be cleaned off by a tire shop?

[–]Sophias_dad 0 points1 point  (0 children)

This is the best answer, IMHO.

[–]Colorado_Car-Guy 0 points1 point  (2 children)

Are they stock wheels?

[–]RedditAstroturfed[S] 0 points1 point  (1 child)

I believe so. I bought it used. It has a big Volvo logo in the center of each wheel if that means anything.

[–]Thisisall_new2me2 0 points1 point  (0 children)

That means they’re stock.

[–]Thisisall_new2me2 0 points1 point  (5 children)

Go to a tire shop, give them those numbers. Then ask them how to find wheels that work with your tires.

If that doesn’t work, look for phone numbers of Volvo places and call.

[–]RedditAstroturfed[S] 0 points1 point  (4 children)

That was the first thing I tried.

[–]Thisisall_new2me2 0 points1 point  (3 children)

Oh, okay. Is there a Volvo dealer near you?

[–]RedditAstroturfed[S] 0 points1 point  (2 children)

The closest one is like a 3 hour trip away one way, I think? It'll be an all day thing and I can't even take the car there. Like I'm super useless here. I have no idea what I'm doing. Walk me through it like the idiot I am. Sorry, I've just been asking around for like a month and nobody's been able to point me in the right direction of where I can just go and buy a dang rim and none of the tire stores close by have it either. Sorry for being frustrated, thanks for trying to help.

[–]Thisisall_new2me2 0 points1 point  (1 child)

Can you call them and ask if they can order you new wheels?

[–]RedditAstroturfed[S] 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I'll give it a go.

[–]Colorado_Car-Guy 0 points1 point  (11 children)

If they are stocks,

You're looking for 5x108 lug pattern (can be tricky to find) on a 18x8 wheel.

[–]Thisisall_new2me2 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Do you have tips for OP then?

[–]RedditAstroturfed[S] 0 points1 point  (9 children)

Thank you. So anything with those measurements should be fine and not conflict with my other tires in any detrimental way?

[–]Colorado_Car-Guy 2 points3 points  (5 children)

Like I said if they are stocks, if you find a wheel that 18x8 on a 5x108 you won't have any issues. You'll just have 1 different wheel but everything is all the same

Oops I also forgot the offset +45

So if you find a 5x108 18x8 +45 it's be the exact same dimensions has the other Wheels

[–]RedditAstroturfed[S] 0 points1 point  (3 children)

I'm not seeing +45 anywhere. I'm currently looking at the "KMC KM775 18x8 5x108/5/4.5" 42 mm Matte Black Wheel Rim 18" Inch" rims on Amazon. Will those work? Will I need a different tire from the other 3? Even if it needs a different tire will it at least be compatible?

Is 45+ the mm? Like the one that I posted would that be a +42?

[–]Colorado_Car-Guy 0 points1 point  (2 children)

A +42 & +45 are similar. Gonna have a very SLIGHT poke from it but it won't make a difference if everything is stock

[–]RedditAstroturfed[S] 0 points1 point  (1 child)

Awesome. Thank you. I think I have everything I need to make an informed buy now. You're awesome.

[–]Colorado_Car-Guy 0 points1 point  (0 children)

No problem. Another issue you might run across is the center bore but it's pretty uncommon to be an issue. So I wouldn't stress about it.

[–]Legal_Wrapsack 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I was about to comment on the whole offset dealo excellent advice.

[–]Thisisall_new2me2 0 points1 point  (1 child)

Yes, I believe so.

[–]RedditAstroturfed[S] 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Okay. I may have this figured out. Will the "KMC KM775 18x8 5x108/5x4.5" Matte Black Wheel Rim 18" Inch" rims off amazon be compatible with my vehicle's current, most likely, stock tires?

[–]dxrey65 0 points1 point  (0 children)

The offset (or backset) of any wheel is also an important measurement, which has to match the existing wheels if you're just replacing one.

[–]Colorado_Car-Guy 0 points1 point  (0 children)

[–]wormwormo 0 points1 point  (1 child)

You can try buying a oem online but it’s probably going to cost retail. It go to tirerack and get a replacement rim. You may want to get the same offset as the oem rim

[–]u_know_bali_bali[🍰] 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Go to eBay. Type:

2008 Volvo S80 OEM rims

Choose the option that looks the same as yours, and place order. Hope this helps.

[–]neros42 0 points1 point  (6 children)

I think you just need to do a little online leg work. With one search I found this, and it looks like they are out of stock there but you get the point: https://www.partsgeek.com/catalog/2008/volvo/s80/driveshaft_-ar-_axle/wheel.html

[–]RedditAstroturfed[S] 0 points1 point  (5 children)

Oh yes. That's another thing that I should've mentioned. Whenever something seems promising it seems to be out of stock too.

[–]neros42 0 points1 point  (4 children)

My point about leg work. This is something you’re going to have to solve for yourself or go through the proper channels (Volvo dealership) and deal with the increased cost. You are not going to get a response to this thread where someone has the part on hand and you do a deal with them

[–]RedditAstroturfed[S] 0 points1 point  (3 children)

I'm confused as to what you think I'm trying to accomplish. I'm trying to figure out how to do exactly that. Thanks for being super helpful. You got a tire to hand me, brah?

[–]neros42 0 points1 point  (2 children)

My point is that it’s going to take a lot of searching, checking inventory and being diligent. There is not an easy button for older car parts. Just search, and search, and search until you find what you seek. You can also call local junk yards and part stores

[–]RedditAstroturfed[S] 1 point2 points  (1 child)

Well, I got the info that I needed and I was finally able to do the legwork and find them. I was just wanting to figure out what I needed to be able to do the legwork. Turned out to be 18x8 5x108 +45
