The original fitment thing is not 100% accurate. The brochure wasn't all that clear, so some of them I was going by memory. Although, the C70 version of the 5-spoker is a 17, I think the one on the US V70R was the 16.

Only it won't fit in most Volvos as it has four lugs.

They actually started to offer that for the new C70 SEs as well.<P>I think that V70 you have there in the picture is using some aftermarket rims. Your 3rd pic is the one that comes with the C70. The Triton wheel only come in 18 inch, the 17 inch is a different name...Propus, right?<P>Yeah...the reason I didn't just the car equip'd with the Triton was the way it looks. It's pretty decent wheel already, but it has no 'lip'...so looked kinda plain for my taste.
