I was surfing and found this. Very cool, now if it were just a wagon. It'd be just like mine then, only mine's stock.

This was my good friend Jan's '96 850 T-5R. It was heavily modified. Good for about 300hp. But Jan sold the car recently and is waiting for a brand new S60T5.

Hi sniper,

As Indy said, those wheels are called Tritons and they are options for the C70s. Thanks for your kind words about my car. Don't ask me how much everything cost, because if I have kept track, I would have killed myself by now after knowing how much I have spent
I have did 2 dyno sessions and both times, I pulled about 230hp at the wheel which equals to about 270+hp.

Hahaha! I think that the problem with Volvo is that their base cars have terrible looking rims, while their top cars have awesome looking rims. It seems like there is no middle ground.

The S60 T5 18" Nebula and 17" Tethys, V70 T5 17" Amalthea, S80 T6 18" Capella and 17" Arrakis, S40/V50 Crater 16" and Cyber 16", C70 T5 Triton 18", Comet 17", and Canisto 17" are all beautifully designed wheels.

This is one of my favorites for sure: The 7.5 x 17 Comet in silver. Perfect for showing off some crossdrilled/vented discs and painted calipers.

yeah good point. their old rims sucked but i think now that volvo is coming back into the VERY sporty and high powered race of cars. they are coming out with some nice rims...my dad owns a volvo and its an 88 240dl and it sucks so bad i used to hate volvo...until i rode in my friends 95 850-t5 i thought differently now volvo's are my favorite car.....
