I just picked up a 2002 V70XC Ocean Race with 120K miles on it. Ultimately the car will be on snow duty with my daughter who's going to college in upstate NY. I have a couple questions about the car:

- I would like to mount snow tires on separate wheels. I have a set of original 16" Helium wheels from a 2000 S70 GLT. I think those should fit. Anybody see a problem with that?

- I see the car has a trailer hitch, but does not seem to have the tongue and ball. I assume this was a separate option to purchase? Can't find it in the car anywhere.


The car seems to be in good shape having recently been checked out and serviced by a Volvo dealer mechanic. New rotors/pads, new ETM, all new fluids, new plugs, some sensors replaced, new front springs and struts, etc. AWD is working and transmission seems to be healthy at least so far. Here's a photo of the car with my R somewhere in the mountains of West Virginia on the trip home - actually a combined college drop-off/ pick up car trip. Bit of a long story.

Here are a couple more pics. The car needs a good detailing and some dings removed. It's been a long time since it's seen a coat of wax. It was owned by a little old lady who didn't drive it for the past two years.

Looks like a great one, thanks. I've got an '04 XC with similar mileage that was meticulously cared for (until I got it lol) and it has been a perfect vehicle for just about everything I run into in the NE. Your daughter lucked out!

Congrats on the purchase, I love that shade of blue. Long shot, I know, but what number is your car? I bought a bundle of books recently and ended up with this book and would like to see it reunited with the correct car.

Mine is #300 so no match unfortunately. Thanks for checking though.

The tongue and ball is listed in the installation PDF so I'm reasonably sure your car came with one originally. It's a 2" receiver so it shouldn't be too hard to source one.

I recently pulled a factory hitch from a junked '02 Ocean Race and I've been waiting for a good day to install it.
