      Ebay 20" Ixions - DEAL or NO DEAL?

      Anybody have experience with these aftermarket eBay Ixions?

      I think the size really enhances the aggressive look of the car, but I wonder what the quality is like? I'm sure they're Chinese knockoffs, but maybe worth doing or too risky? Seller has a good record.

      They look like the wrong PCD. Isn't the Volvo 5 x 108, not 5 x 120?

      Never heard of the Accelera brand of tire.


      BTW... there is a second ad on eBAY for the same rim without tires. That ad has the right bolt pattern (5x108) listed.

      I believe they are the same wheels on both ads.. They are offering a set without the tires for $759 with free ship. If they're as decent quality-wise as IPD's Chinese Pegasus knock-offs, I'm game, even if they're heavier than OEM. The ad says they come with a lifetime structural guarantee, so maybe it's a good deal?

      Are these genuine? I don't think they made Ixions in 20" unless these are replicas.

      No, they are replicas. But, Volvo does make a 20" version of the Ixion II rim which came on XC60 RDs.

      Yep Ixion 1 replicas for sure. The tall wheel with 8.5 width will force a very low profile tire to avoid fender rubbing, which translates to a very rough ride. Don't know about the manufacturer, but they are probably on the soft side, so will be susceptible to bends from potholes. Make sure they have the correct center hub bore of 63.4mm.

      My experience with buying aftermarket wheels on Ebay has been pretty harsh. I had a serious blowout hitting a small piece of wood a few years back with Pegasus replicas. The entire inside lip blew off, about 8 inches of rim(wheel) The tire was fine however. It comes to show you how soft some of these wheels can be being aftermarket. I hear Ixions bend easily. I was interested in getting them for my XC60, I have 20'Cratus, but will probably keep them and powder coat in the spring instead.

      I'd rather just find genuine Volvo rims on craigslist used to be honest.....they are out there, you just need to get lucky.

      One cheap ass casting is dangerous when you are going down the highway with your family in the car...
