I've narrowed it down to these 3 17" rims but can't seem to decide. What do you guys think?<P> <IMG SRC="http://www.autosporttuning.com/photos/volvo_wheels.jpg">

I love the center rim, the vulans they call them I think. Thats my personal choice. All of them are great rims though<P>Scott

Have you seen the titan wheels?<BR>They're the 5 spoke off the T-5R model and have the same dark anthricite color as the volans, i think they look awesome.

Okay, on the reply it did. I vote either choice 1 or 2. Can't go wrong with either. I know a couple of places where you can buy either one refinished, or just watch ipd's classifieds or Ebay.

Out of those 3, I would have to pick the middle one <B>(Volans)</B>, but in my opinion it is hard to beat the 17-inch <B>(Titans)</B> for pure looks. The square/hard edged look of the Titans, compliments the 850/S70 body style very well. Although, any of them will look good.<P><B>Titans</B><BR>$295 each at AAARims.Com<P> <IMG SRC="http://www.aaarims.com/wheels/70192.JPG"> <P>My 'close' second favorite Volvo wheels are the 17-inch 'Comet'.<P><B>Comet</B><BR> <IMG SRC="http://sc2.vcc.m.volvocars.se/bilder/pp/newc70/exterior/rims/w135_cc70_81.jpg"> <P>-Drew<p>[This message has been edited by InDy (edited 10-24-2001).]

Go for the Volans if you can find them...those were always my favorite.<P>Wow, I didn't know the Comets were 17s....they look like the 16 inch wheels on my V70R....forgot the name of them.<P>Would anyone happen to know where I can get some touch up paint for my wheels? The color is a chromish silver....I think it's called "titanium silver".
