Hi Everyone,<p>Just wanted to post a few teaser pictures of one of several new wheels we will be releasing for the S60R/V70R models in the coming months! Pricing will be announced upon the official release.<p>ViVA PERFORMANCE "Revolution" wheel in 19 x 8" +43mm. <br>Available Finishes: Hyper Silver, Black Chrome (pictured), Anthracite.<p>I installed Toyo T1-R in 235/35-19 and have not experienced any rubbing (stock suspension) whatsoever. Spacers are <B>NOT </B>required, but some may choose to install them for the wider track look. There has also been no noticable difference in ride harshness, albeit I have yet to encounter any major Boston potholes. Without further ado:<p><IMG SRC="http://www.vivaperformance.com/george/black_chrome_pegasus_19_installed.jpg" BORDER="0"><p><IMG SRC="http://www.vivaperformance.com/george/black_chrome_pegasus_19_installed2.jpg" BORDER="0">

Re: Teaser Pic - New ViVA Performance Wheels (George @ ViVA)

I'm hoping around $200-230. That's how much they cost in Sweden so it's just a matter of what the wholesale price is, figure in cost of shipping and profit.

(aside from the other giveaways, lol.) I bet that T5 would give some R's a run for their money if they have as much under the hood as they do in brakes.

That car pictured is a MY2001 S60 T5 and also has significant engine modifications. It is also located overseas (where the price of an R is considerably higher than here in the US).
