Volvo does seem to make some very awesome looking factory rims. These are the ones that I think are the best looking by far. I wish that they would bring some of these to the United States. My two favorites are the Comet and Nebula. Which ones do you like? These are all available in Sweden for the 2001 model year:<P> <IMG SRC="http://www.intelcities.com/Sportster_Way/DrewSRX/rimspics3.jpg"> <P>-Drew<p>[This message has been edited by InDy (edited 02-23-2001).]

It looks like there are some great new rims coming in the future as well!<P>The rims from the SCC (Safety Concept Car) are sweet looking. I hope they make it into production.<P>Also, the wheels from the PCC (Performance Concept Car) are awesome looking. They are real BTCC BBS two piece wheels with a center lug-nut, along with Brembo calipers and slotted/vented discs. I doubt that these will ever make it into production, because they are so expensive, but I hope some form of them will. <IMG SRC="http://www.swedespeed.com/ubb/biggrin.gif"><P>-Drew<p>[This message has been edited by InDy (edited 02-23-2001).]

Looks like those Cybers and the Crater are 4-lug for the S40. I've seen pics of a car wiht the Cybers and it looks so much better. Wish they'd put that on a US sport package.

Is it me or are the tethyses on the new s60 T5s or is it me? And the arrakises on the S80 T6? Boy would I love to have some of the Tritons or the craters for my 850. I have the turbo fans now, and like them a lot, but I am thinking about getting another set of wheels for summer. Does anyone know if we can order the wheels either from volvo or some other company, or are they just for sweden? I'm sure they would cost an arm and a leg from volvo, but... could be worth it.<P><P>

The Nebulas were on the car at Detroit. I asked a Volvo rep about them, and he said he thought we'd be able to get them through a US dealer. If one dealer tells you no, try another, because it shouldn't be that tough.

Anybody know if the "Comet" wheels would fit on an 850 T? They look like the 16's I have now, but the 17's appear to have been on a wieght loss program or something. I want em!

Prospero,<P>The "Comet" was made for the 1998 S70R and V70R AWD, so I am not sure if it will fit your 850, but it should. I think that it looks the best. The wheels below will fit your car for sure without any problems. They are also nice looking.<P>Here are some other great looking factory Volvo rims. The best place that I have found for getting Volvo rims is AAARims.Com. They have a wide variety of factory rims at a reasonable price.<P> <IMG SRC="http://www.intelcities.com/Sportster_Way/DrewSRX/rimspics2.jpg"> <P>-Drew<p>[This message has been edited by InDy (edited 02-23-2001).]

I dont know if i'm just anxious, but I think that wheel on the S60 is proof that S60 Racing is in full gear to have a running S60 Racing car by the end of the year!<P>Carlos<BR>2001 Volvo S40 "Volvo for life"<P>by the way, I like the Volans...

There's a set of new 16" Comet wheels with tires on ebay now:<BR> <A HREF="http://cgi.ebay.com/aw-cgi/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=552483817" TARGET=_blank>http://cgi.ebay.com/aw-cgi/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=552483817</A> <P>The price seems high to me considering they're only 16" wheels. There's a guy who's got a set of BBS 18" C70 wheels w/tires that he's been trying to sell for about $1500, which seems like a much better deal to me.<P>

Oh hell, it's only money <IMG SRC="http://www.swedespeed.com/ubb/wink.gif"><P>Guess I will just keep my 16" Columba wheels for now. Maybe when I strike it rich I will get the Comet wheels.<P>Maybe next time...<P>Prospero

It's kinda cool how Volvo plays around with so many different finishes. I don't know many auto manufacturers that do that.
