Re: (GiRaff3)

Man...wish you were closer so I could see these in person to get a feel for how they'd look on my R.<p>Curious, though...how far are you from Phuz? Maybe I drive out from Ohio for a DP/Exhaust/FMIC install and check these out while I'm there.

Re: (GiRaff3)

Updated pix posted. They look much better when the lighting is proper and the camera is cooperating.

Re: (jdsr917)

The R community is lame when it comes to wheels. If they arent stock 17 or 18" pegs, dont even bother posting them up for sale....gheyness <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/rolleyes.gif" BORDER="0">

Re: (soupandspoons)

B.G.'s got some great wheels (more than just his Vivas: HRE, Evolve V7, etc) and he has some great wheel plans for the future. He is correct in that there always appears to be more interest in oem wheels such as Pegs than aftermarket wheels such as these Ronals. People are willing to pay closer to retail for Pegs than for aftermarket forged wheels. Kinda screwy, just the way the volvo crowd in general is, more conservative. There are obviously exceptions.<p>These wheels are great and look killer on an R -as the pics show- and would look great on almost any Volvo. I'd love to add them to my collection but am not really in the market as Giraff and I have already talked about them. Hopefully someone out there can spice up their car with these bad boys!

I am seriously becoming a wheel *****. I am getting to the point though where I am going to sell either the R41s or the Medusas, and whichever set doesn't sell, is going to go on my car.

All I was basically trying to point out is that these wheels look good and will look good mounted up to any R. A great alternative for someone wanting to run something other than pegs <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/zeroforum_graphics/screwy.gif" BORDER="0">

Lighten than Pegs, which is not difficult <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/eek.gif" BORDER="0">

Re: FS: (4) 18x8 Ronal R41s powder coated black (GiRaff3)

Some questions...<p>Will these fit without spacers etc on P2 Rs? Also do you know if the Volvo center cap will fit in these wheels?<p>Thanks<p>

Re: FS: (kanned)

They clear the R calipers perfectly. I always used the Ronal center caps, but I am pretty confident that are the same size as regular Volvo center caps. I can test it this evening.
