Will this wheel fit my 93 900 1993

Dear Dom's940,

Hope you're well. Volvo did not market 940s in the U.S. after 1995. Thus, I can't be sure about the black steel wheels used on later 940s. But I'd guess that the same part (#1387534) was used in later years of the 940, wherever sold. A wheel from a 960/V90/S90 will not interchange, so far as I know.

Be sure that the steel wheel's circumferential openings are circular (round), not "square". Round openings mean the wheel is full-service. The "square" openings mean the wheel is the limited-service unit.

Any factory-original tire mounted on a limited-service wheel is not safe to use, by virtue of its great age. Even if a factory-original limited-service spare tire looks perfect, do not - under any circumstances - use it. It can fail suddenly and so catastrophically. Rubber degrades with time, and a 20+ year-old tire is a time-bomb.

Hope this helps.

Yours faithfully,

Spook
