What is a good aftermarket wheels for a 2000 S70? My preference is a Star (5 or 6 Spoke) design if possible. Tried the IPD Pegasus replica and had problems with fitment specifically the bore. Thanks.

The bore should have been just fine but PEGS are an 8" wheel and very close clearances, you really want a 7" or a 7.5" wheel.<p>They are many, many wheels available, just go to either <A HREF="http://www.tirerack.com" TARGET="_blank">http://www.tirerack.com</A> or <A HREF="http://www.discounttire.com" TARGET="_blank">http://www.discounttire.com</A> to see what they have

Additionally, there is a promotion that you can get back $200 for buying a set of 4 Volvo aluminum wheels; it's a heck of a deal!

Most retailers can get them cheap. And Comets USED to be sold in 16". Perhaps, they can still be found in 16" (and I know what the METEORS look like; the only thing they have in common with the COMETS is the 5-spoke pattern).<br>

Thanks to all of you. Keep it coming if you have more recommendations.<p>I'll start making phones and hitting web sites then I will narrow down my choices in the next couple of weeks.<br>
