What happened to the (non-chrome) Atlantis wheels? That particular wheel looked really good on the XC90, I can't believe its been replaced.<p>Can it be included on a factory-ordered car instead of the new wheels?<p>And no, I don't want chrome...

Re: Atlantis wheels on MY07? (Volvo6850)

I've only seen the V8.... I'm sure if that's the same wheel on the 3.2 it looks small on that too....<p>Just something I noticed... The atlantis is a better looking wheel IMO, and looks bigger than the new wheel...

My point, exactly. Why replace a wheel design that works so well?

Re: (rfkuehn)

The Atlantis Wheel is still available, but only on the V8 and requires the "Touring Atlantis" package.

Just looked at the Volvo web site, only see the chrome Atlantis for $1,495 on I6, 'optional' for V8. <p>So the non-chrome Atlantis wheels are gone? The best looking wheel on this vehicle (my opinion)? <p>Morons.

We went with the painted Aluminum Atlantis wheel for our V8.

Somebody likes the Panopea wheels? <p>I'm using them for winters and bought a set of non-chrome Atlantis for summer. <p>IMHO they are UGLY and they ain't got no alibi they're UGLY. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/smile.gif" BORDER="0">
