wobble bolts would work fine. but the hubs are different, and you cant go from big(saab) to small(vw/audi) thru an adapter, at least i dont think you can(someone correct em if im wrong).

meaning youd have to bore them by a guy in a machine shop.

itd be a lot of work, id keep looking for something for a volvo, cause they have a 5x108 pattern adn jsut wobble bolts are needed i believe.
