I think they may be OEM. They look like Solar wheels.<p>Solar<br> <IMG SRC="http://www.swedespeed.com/resources/gallery/special_cars/wheels/fwd_16/images/large/16.jpg" BORDER="0"> <p>By the way this info is on the site. Click on the Resources tab ---> Gallery ---> Wheels and find what you want.<p>Hope this helps.

Re: What rims are on this V70R? (Arnaud)

Thanks Larry. I keep forgetting about the other links as I go directly to the forum's page instead of going though the main one.<p>Unfortunately this is the only pic I have found of this V70R. It may be my next car.. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://********************/smile/emwink.gif" BORDER="0"> I'll take pics if I do end up at the dealership this week.<p>According to the wheel guide, the following is the OEM R rim<p><IMG SRC="http://swedespeed.com/resources/gallery/special_cars/wheels/fwd_16/images/large/10.jpg" BORDER="0"><p>RJ

Interesting... I have the Satelights on my '00 but they are the silver 16". That combo part number isn't listed as an option on the Sweedspeed photo. Anybody else have that rim?

Re: What rims are on this V70R? (Stew)

that's right, the 2000 R has the 16" Satellite rim. the '99 Rs had the Solar rim<p>

I got my 17" Satellite Anthrcite wheels for $249/ea from the dealer - you should be able to get better on pricing on the 16" rims. Looking at all the stuff has purchased from myvolvoparts.com, you may want to check with them.<p>

Chris,<p>I'm not asking about the price of the rims themselves but the dealer's price on this 99 V70R. I would probably go with aftermarket 17's for less than the price of the Satellites.<p>RJ

I would go for the one at the Ford dealer in Maryland. Same price, same miles, but a year newer with 5 sp tranny and 261 hp. Not too far for you to go for the right car, IMHO.

Re: What rims are on this V70R? (Wayne T5)

That one doesn't have a 5speed tranny. AFAIK they never came out with the 5-speed manual for the Rs. <p>The problem with the one in Maryland is that it needs a new paint job.<p>I can go to Maryland to get it. It's not a problem at all. <p>RJ

Re: What rims are on this V70R? (The_one_n_only)

So the 99's didn't come with a 5-speed auto? Only a 4speed auto?<p>RJ

Yup - 2000 Rs have a 5spd Auto. 98-99 have 4spd autos. <p>

For the same $25k I'd say go for the silver 2000 R in MD at the Ford dealer(in classifieds) instead of the '99 R above. That '00 does need some TLC but if you want all the "goodies" you'll have to go for a 2000 R. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://********************/smile/emsmilep.gif" BORDER="0">

When you say it needs a new paint job are you talking about the scratches on the bumper and elsewhere? I would just have the work be part of your deal if you were interested. They didn't seem too major from Chris' pictures.
