      Question 18" Pegasus Wheels - Keystone #ALY70267U Through Rock Auto?

      Hi all!

      I'm on the search for 18" Pegs for the VR and sort of by accident tonight I stumbled onto wheels available through Rock Auto listed as "Keystone Part #ALY70267U". They are described as "Alloy; Size: 18x8; Bolt Pattern Dia: 108; 5 Lugs [Replica] Color: Medium Hypersilver; Front Or Rear; 46mm Offset". Is anyone familiar with these or have experience with these? They seem like a really great price for new wheels, but I can't find any posts about them anywhere, so I'm a little nervous to jump on them.

      Thanks!

      The picture doesn't show the signature "R" on the wheel. Not so sure about these. IPD is a bit more at $199ea. for their rep's, however; they also give you 3 color choices. Anyhow, if you get them, let us know your experience.

      I ordered a replacement 17" Peg from Rock Auto. It's the genuine Volvo part and in new condition.

      That's interesting, the 17" Peg (ALY70305U) shows the R on the wheel, but right now it also shows as a reconditioned wheel instead of a new Replica. When you bought it, was it a new Keystone wheel or a reconditioned wheel?

      hi, i ordered a wheel from rock auto for our 2012 s 60 and it was a volvo branded perfect wheel. on the paperwork it said keystone is a refinished wheel sourced from lkq a huge outfit that supplies crash parts to body shops.

      anyway it looks brand new, perfect in every way i can see. origional volvo borbet made in germany, exactly right for our car.

      best of luck, ours was 170 delivered in a sealed bag and great box. i was impressed,

      if you want to get one from ipd i would not hesitate. i have been an ipd customer for over 30 years. they have NEVER let me down.

      the keystone reconditioned wheel was perfect, and a true volvo oem wheel. volvo branded real deal.

      The replica is different than the oem. Do not get it if you are only replacing one wheel. You will notice the difference.

      When I bought it it said it was a reconditioned wheel and it did NOT have the R on the picture. If you told someone it was not a brand new Volvo wheel, they wouldn't believe you. Excellent job reconditioning and it's definitely a genuine Pegasus wheel.

      Im a body shop estimator and work with keystone everyday on recon parts and you'll be happy with their stuff...as long as it is a reconditioned part and not just aftermarket junk. just a heads up I found a reconditioned rear VR specific bumper from them for $627 when OE was around $1200 for the cover and lower valance/spoiler. So, to everyone with a droopy lip (that the significant other/parent/friend did ) check them out for recon parts that are definitely OE parts for much less $$

      Uh oh, caught red-handed!

      I'm looking at buying 4 of whatever I buy and the ones on Rock Auto are shown as "New Replica Wheels" manufactured by Keystone. Keystone is in both businesses; reconditioning OEM wheels and manufacturing replica wheels. I'm trying to find if anyone has ever bought the new replica wheels manufactured by Keystone and what they thought of them.

      SNEAK PEAK! Had a Rehearsal Dinner after work today, so didn't get to do a full unpacking, but they're here!





      I ordered these Thursday (4/9/2015) at 12:30 AM and they showed up outside the garage at 12 Noon on Friday (4/10/2015). That's faster than Amazon! I'm hoping to follow-up with more photos and comparisons to OEM.

      Alright, got them opened up. Here's the goods!

















      I haven't gotten to do a side by side comparison yet (I will once I get tires on), but they appear really well made and very original looking. As Hanks pointed out, they really do look like OEM.

      EDIT: I forgot to mention, if you're buying from Rock Auto, make sure to use a 5% off code to save half the cost of shipping. I got brand new wheels for $671.32 on my doorstep the next day. YMMV, but I'm pretty happy with my choice.

      Those look really nice. I need new wheels. I'm trying to decide whether or not to get my current (road rashed) wheels refinished or just buy new ones.

      Just so I'm clear, these RockAuto "Keystone" pegs have the "R" on them like the oem wheel?

      Good looking Chinese replica.
      I've seen some of their BMW replica wheels - didn't know they did the Volvo gear...

      Let us know how they finished up mounted on the car!

      Yes, these "New Replica" Keystone Pegs sold through RockAuto do have the inlaid "R" and the R looks more like the OEM than other replicas.

      As Syrup pointed out, they are Chinese replicas. I wasn't super happy to find that out, but the quality seems good and Keystone carries a long standing positive reputation. The true test will be what happens when I get tires on the wheels and see how they perform.

      Ask and receive!

      My bathroom scale claims that the wheel weighs 28.6 lbs, but what's it know, it's always saying numbers which are too high! ;-)

      The shipping label says 29 lbs, so that should give you a sense of it.

      Did a bit of searching online and this seems to be in line with the OEM wheel weights. IPD lists the weight of their wheels as 27 lbs which is a couple pounds lighter than these replicas or the OEM wheels. The bore size of the IPD wheels is larger and the offset is less, so this might explain the weight difference. If anyone also buys these wheels, I'm interested to get their impression of the wheels and to see them mounted, as well. I found very little information about these Keystone replicas, so I would like to get as much information in one place as possible.

      interesting as the wheel i got was a volvo branded wheel with the correct volvo part number on it. hmmm, i guess that keystone has several sources. mine was "reconditioned", so i guess it was. mine said on it that it was made in germany so it must have been i guess.

      i hope all is good!

      From what I can find online at RockAuto and other sources, Keystone both manufacturers replica wheels (mine were manufactured in China) and reconditions OEM wheels. Like you said, yours were reconditioned OEM wheels, so they'd have been made in Germany or wherever else Volvo has their wheels made.

      On an alternate topic, I just placed an order this afternoon for a new set of DWS shipped to my local garage, so in short order I should be able to show pics of the wheels mounted.

      As promised, I finally got the DWS's shipped and the 18's are on the VR. I've got some mixed feelings coming away from having gotten them mounted, which I'll detail below, as well as showing photos.

      Good Things:
      +The VR looks great with the 18's.
      +The Keystone Pegs have a slightly lighter silver color than OEM, but they look great.
      +Although I didn't get to push them or go anywhere with any speed, they rolled smooth and felt good.

      Bad Things:
      -18's allow for tire rub, but I'm used to that with the SR
      -I was wiping my finger around inside the opening for the Volvo wheel cap and on 2 or 3 of the wheels a thin chunk of paint fell off. I don't know if it matters, but it was a little disconcerting.
      -I asked the tech how the wheels balanced and he showed me the weights. On 2 of the wheels, it took two rows of 6 - 10 (I don't remember exactly) small weights to balance the wheel. On the other 2 wheels, it only took one row. I don't know much about aftermarket wheels, so I don't know if this is normal. I don't think my OEM pegs have more than 2 or 3 weights. I asked the tech if this gave him the impression that the wheels were of poor quality and he didn't seem to think that's what it meant (although he may have been trying to soft sell it a little, I couldn't tell). He said that's more common on aftermarket wheels like these.

      Coming away from this, I'm curious to know what experience others have with new aftermarket wheels. Have you had to deal with adding tons of weights? Should I be concerned by how many weights it took? As long as they could be balanced, am I good to go?

      Besides my concerns, I really am satisfied with the purchase. I'm hopeful that the wheels will wear well and turn out to be a good decision l

      The tires may be more responsible for the imbalance that the rims are. Also, since a plug goes in the center hole its not surprising that the attention to detail for the paint in there isn't the greatest, no one will see it unless the cap falls off after all, lol.

      I'm just glad to see that chunk of paint wasn't something the tire guys took off of a more important part of the wheel.

      Stealthy, that's a good point. I have no way of knowing which (the tire or the wheel) is really to blame at this point. Having the next set of tires installed and balanced will tell the story a little more clearly if suddenly I need almost no weights.

      The paint on the finished "show" surfaces seems really well done. The only place where I noticed some inconsistencies in the paint was inside the center bore of the wheel. Thinking and talking about it more does make me a little less worried about the concerns I had.

      I just got done scraping off a decade's worth of tire weight goo off my factory 18" pegs and they were all over the place. Shows at least the volvo wheels are the least of the imbalance. If the dimensional accuracy of your repros are good enough I'd assume they'd be the same.

      I guess it comes down to the tire fitter.

      I had my OEM pegs refinished a few years back (minor curb rash).
      The place that reconditioned them had to true them.
      So they were good as new when finished.

      Had a separate shop fit brand new tires and road force balance them.
      The dude fitting the tires said he had to refit & rotate the tire a few times to get a good starting point before adding wheel weights.

      So even with reconditioned OE wheels and new tires, there's still some messing about.
      A good fitter will rotate the tire on the wheel - rather than throwing lots of wheel weights.

      That's good to know going forward! I guess I don't know if he did that or not, but judging by the number of weights, it seems unlikely. From now on I'll be sure to follow-up with them on this and see that they try and minimize the need for weight application. Thanks!

      Let me ask you guys this; I've not typically used this garage, but it's SUPER local to me and they are an approved installed from TireBuyer, where I bought my tires. I've got another set of 4 tires sitting in their shop waiting to be installed on my wife's TSX. Is the issue regarding the crazy number of weights a big enough issue to think about calling and asking them to redo it (considering I've got the leverage of online reviews through TireBuyer and that I could cancel the install on my wife's car and just go pick the tires up and have the work done elsewhere) or is it just some extra weights and I'm making something of nothing?

      For the rub, the only tires I've ever had rub were Conti DWS. I have 18s and am lowered on my R. My summers don't rub at all.

      That's interesting. I can't recall if the tires that the PO had on the SR rubbed at lock. I've been running DWS on the SR since I bought it and it's always had a bit of rub at full lock. I honestly don't care at all that it does it. If I get to the rub, I just let up on the wheel a hair and it's good to go.

      Update from this morning. On the way into work this morning I was able to let the VR do a bit of running and throughout the speeds I ran, it was smooth as silk.
