While at a Volvo event for the new S60 AWD, we spotted one car floating around with the optional 17-inch wheel package on it. The new wheel is called Thor and will come on S60 and V70 AWD models as an option. It's pretty cool. Looks like the older Volan to me.

Below is how it looked on the car.

Hmm..almost looks like beefed-up Volan to me. Not too bad, but I think I'll take the 'thin spokes' one instead.

Those look kind of like the 16" version of the Volans, which have shorter spokes that make them look wider. Anyone know the name of the 16" wheel that's exactly like the Volan?

I think those "Thor" wheels look pretty nice as well. I think the car would look a lot nicer if it had the optional sports suspension that Volvo says you can get, so that the car would be lower.

For some reason, these "Titans" are still my all-time favorite Volvo wheel.




The wheels below came on the non SE, 99' V70 XC.

Is this it? If so it is called Pleiad.
I'm not sure, but I think that the 16" wheel that looks like the Volan is also a 7 spoke wheel, but I could be wrong. I've only seen them twice.
