Need a dremel so i can get into the tight spots.

I'll probably keep them as is(just clearcoat). or Paint the outside indentations black.

Photochop welcome

damn those came out nice!

you should take them to a place in town called Affordable Powdercoat, they charge $125(maybe less) to do all 4 wheels. They would look sweet in white or black......

White would give it a rally look...but they'd be a pita to keep clean.

what are you going to use these for? You already have a nice set of 15's.

what did you clean them with? steel wool or something... they look like they have been prepped for paint.

Maybe paint them white... and with letters around the center saying "Volvo Turbo" (ronal turbo) ;)

Yes Steel Wool... something like that.

I want them as my daily driving wheels now. I'm scared that I will bust up my MSW's even more...

and they have more rubber on them, I want a softer ride.

I wish these were big enough to fit over the bigger 940 brakes, they are incredibly sexy.

or you could just get taller tires for the msw's, like 205/55. 14's are lol.

they are pretty ugly, but better then hub caps! I started to clean mine with s-100 or what ever and it took 4 hrs to do just the outside face 9of one wheel! All those little inside parts are annoying as F**K, I never got to clean them b/c I gave up!
