Re: S60-R wheels (Theodore Ruxpin)

Yes those are one of the two five spoke types shown at Paris. The other is the flat spoke type. I would be really happy with either.<br>Rich <br> <br>How do I include image?

Re: S60-R wheels (snoogans)

Snoogans those are just too far out! Actually I like the smaller wheels so that the brake disk fills the space inside. I think the large amount of empty space between the wheel and the brakes looks too ricey and wimpy. A full wheel looks strong to me. How about a way to block that space. Hmmmmm.<br>I still want the plush ride of the taller sidewalls, without the extra diameter that will hurt acceleration.<br>Rich, with a custom lower grille.

Re: S60-R wheels (Maya Gold)

Maya,<br> Another variation of the five spoke 'R' type rims are also available from Volvo. They are called 'Sirius' and they come as 16" rims. (http://www.volvocanada.com/index.asp?pag=accessories&lng=en&col=anigreen&typ=financing&car=s60 scroll to the bottom) They are standard equipment on the 2002/03 S60T5 (Canadian models). They look great on the S60 and are really easy to clean.

I don't know Guys... <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://********************/smile/emsmile.gif" BORDER="0"> <p>I noticed that no one mentioned the word in the entire thread... <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://********************/smile/emsmilep.gif" BORDER="0"> <p>I believe the rims are called Titans (guess you could say Titan R's <shrug&gt<IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://********************/smile/emwink.gif" BORDER="0">. <p>I stand corrected if they are not, <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://********************/smile/emhammer.gif" BORDER="0"> I just remember a review or article somewhere that named them Titans (BTW the volvocars website has the S60 "Titans" when you select build your own however the detail isn't up to par...)

Re: S60-R wheels (Thunderhoof)

I just picked up the Volvo wheel catalog at my dealership and it shows the rims from the S60R as "Satelite". The picture shows the little R logo on one of the spokes of the wheel as well.

Re: S60-R wheels (Thunderhoof)

The wheels called "Titan" (Titanium in swedish) where made for the 850T5R, these were 17" 5 spoke. There is also the same design avialible for the V70RAWD but they have the "R" marking on one of the spokes, and are only 16". I don´t really know what the name of those are, or if it´s possible to buy them. <p>/Eric

Re: S60-R wheels (iqbad)

The ones with the R marking are NOT the same as the new R wheel.<br>These wheels are for the old V70 R AWD and available in 16 and 17".

Re: S60-R wheels (Johann)

Be careful also. There's a slight offset difference between the new P2 cars and the older 850/70-series cars. I believe it's about 8mm. You may have brake clearance issues if you use the older wheels.

Re: S60-R wheels (snoogans)

That looks great. I have been interested in those wheels for a while. Do you have any idea if they make a 17" version of those that matches the offset for the S60?
