I thought I'd post this in the XC90 section because the wheels came off of an XC90, they are 20x8.5", offset is 49. I am currently looking into whether or not there is any way to get them to fit on an S40, but if it doesn't work out I'll probably be selling them. Send me an IM or email. <br>Also, on another note: is there a specific year XC90 that I shouldn't look into buying, or a specific year that is more reliable? My girlfriend is wanting to get one so we've started looking into reliability.<br>Thanks!<br>The wheels look like this:<p><IMG SRC="http://pictures.topspeed.com/IMG/crop/200610/volvo-xc90-by-heico_460x0w.jpg" BORDER="0">

Re: Anyone interested in Heico Volution V's for a good price? (carreragt7)

PM Sent.<p>I don't know of any model year to avoid, but the consensus on here is that you should avoid the T6 models, which have a high transmission failure rate.<p>Good luck!

So after some thoughtful consideration I have decided to stick with my 19"s...first person to pay $1500 gets them. Save over $1,000. There is an ad in the classifieds, I just posted here to give those of you that don't visit there often a heads up. Thanks!

We had a MY '04 XC90 T6 for a couple years (bought it new) and the only problem we had was a moderate howl from the turbo on acceleration. Most of that was cured by adjustment of the air intake ducts by the dealer.

Re: (W6JHB)

Thanks guys for the tips on what I should look for in an XC90. Also a quick update, I just posted new pics of each wheel face in the classified ad, so take a look. The wheels really are in great condition and are a steal at this price. I just don't think it is feasible for me to get them to work on my car right now. If there doesn't seem to be enough interest I might just put them in storage so when I do get an XC90 I will be ready. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/smile.gif" BORDER="0"><p>Link to classified ad with details and pics:<br><A HREF="http://forums.swedespeed.com/zerothread?id=117887" TARGET="_blank">http://forums.swedespeed.com/zerothread?id=117887</A>
