Yesterday I saw a black S60 sporting some Volans wheels in the West Island area of Montreal, Canada. <br> <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://********************/smile/emthup.gif" BORDER="0"> Looked very nice, and a nice change from all those guys that put Pegs on their non-R S60’s.<p>I always wanted to know how Volans would look like on a S60, but I wasn’t sure if they could fit directly on or if spacers were needed to compensate for the difference in off-set.<p>Does anyone on SS have Volans on their S60?<p>Cheers, <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/embeer.gif" BORDER="0"> <br>Raf<br>

I ran Volans on my '96 850R for a while hitting the unavoidable pothole and they were fine. <p>I love Volans a lot. <p>
