Okay, I thought either the Triton or the Propus were available in 18" sizing. I could have sworn I saw that somewhere. However, looking at the Volvo wheel pamphlet that Yannis sent me, I can't seem to find an 18" size anywhere here on either wheel. Any ideas?

The Triton and Propus are essentially the same design. The Triton is the 18" version (18x7.5), and the Propus is the 17" version (17x7).<P>Another example is the <A HREF="http://www.volvoworld.com/photo_pieces/9491653.jpg" TARGET=_blank>Meteor</A> and Comet. The Meteor is the 16" version (16x6.5) and the Comet is the 17" version (17x7), but the two wheels look nearly identical.<P>

A lot of people complained that the Triton gave the C70 a very harsh ride (suspension design is not as updated as the P2x platfrom which can accommodate such designs), especially with the C70 cabriolet...made the cowl shake like mad.<P>Yannis<P><P>

George, I have two Triton 18X7.5s, so you can see them in person if you'd like <IMG SRC="http://www.swedespeed.com/ubb/smile.gif"> And also, if anyone knows where I could find 2 more that would be great!<P>Rob

So do 17" Tritons exist? Has anyone seen them or can verify them?<P>Rob, try <A HREF="http://www.wheelcollisioncenter.com" TARGET=_blank>http://www.wheelcollisioncenter.com</A> for your Tritons. They've sourced me wheels before and have a pretty good purchasing network. Those'd look sick on your Bertone.

You can probably still get them from Volvo.

George, I was just browsing through the wheel gallery and I noticed you listed the Volan at 17x7.5. Aren't most, if not all Volvo 17" wheels 7" wide? Since they usually go up 0.5" in width for every 1" in diameter (15x6, 16x6.5, 17x7, 18x7.5), I wasn't sure if they were like the others, or if they were wider because they came on the R.<P>The gallery looks great so far.<P>

It's getting a whole lot better, and more accurate, thanks to Yannis' help. Thanks BTW. I added all of the ones from his brochure last night, should be up later today.<P>There are two more wheels in your own Volvo accessories book Michael, so I'll be adding those shortly as well. I need to work trying to find good profile pics of some RWD Volvo wheels now.

Kai, I need two more. As in, I NEEEEEED them. They do look sweet on the Bertone George...but I will need even more spacer in the rear, as they're 47 offset. Looked kinda goofy with the 215/35 r*** boy size Paradas...all tucked in in the rear. So I gotta get more spacer, and some 225s.<P>Rob
