HI,<p>Im in need of a set of Pegs and need advice...I have a 2000 S70, should I be getting 17s or 18s? Will they rub??? Whats a girl to do? <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vortexmediagroup.com/images/banghead.gif" BORDER="0"> <p>Where the heck can I find a set, preferably near Toronto Canada at a reasonable price?<p>I know a Volvo dealer who is willing to sell me a set of used and a tad scratched 18 inch Pegs for $800.00 no tax...Is this a good deal or what?<p>Please help...

Re: Girl Needs help with "Pegs" for Her Box Please! (BoxLover)

They may rub in the back and most people run 5mm spacers on the rears. But mostly it depends on tire size. As long as you get the proper tire size, you should be fine. For 17" rims, a 215/45-17 would fit perfectly. For 18" rims, 215/40-18 would fit.<p>Is the price in CDN or US Dollars? How badly scratched are they? Actually either was is pretty decent. Just as long as there are no bends or cracks in it. A new set of 17" Pegs are around $900. You can usually find some used ones here in the Classifides Section for a good price.<p>PS. Love your screen name <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/wink.gif" BORDER="0">

I'm running 225/45/17 w/o rubbing (but I have rolled my fenders). I tried 235/45/17 and they rubbed like HELL, very bad.<p>CAD$800 for pegs seems a little steep. Try searching on classifieds here and on Volvospeed. You might find a set, w/ tires, for cheaper than that.<p>Good luck.<p>P.S.<br>People on VolvoSpeed are organizing a GTA volvo club, you should join! <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/smile.gif" BORDER="0"> As you should come to the many upcoming meets in the summer.

actually, $800Cdn for used 18" pegs isn't bad if they're in decent shape, say 8/10.<p>I'm looking for a set myself -mind pm'ing me with the name of the dealership if you're not interested yourself?

New Style center caps are nice! C70 Jewel lights are awesome. The Euro ones are even better, IMO. hehe I'm just a bit partial to them. They do clean up the front end of the car very nicely. <br>

Your S70 is looking really good! Is it lowered as well?
