    help me identify these wheels.

    Popped up on local classifieds for stupid cheap, thinking they're worth it. Anyone seen them before? I've got a V70 and a 240 on the road so if the offset is only good for one of them no huge loss. Mildly worried about center bore though...

    Troystopher: The BonerjamMobile

    The best alternator in stock location on a 240

    I have an 83 245DL, carbed B21, power nothing. I'm going to be adding power options as I can afford them, as well as eventually getting a bumpin' stereo.

    what is a B230B?

    I know of a Swiss car locally, a '94 940 with a B230B and M46. I searched B230B and only got one not-helpful result, so please, all knowing TB, educate me. Mostly in the difference between it and a B230F/FT. Cheers!
