15" 940 hubcaps? that's where i usually see them, but they sell them as universal fit now i think. it's like a wannabe late model 960 rim.

the old 240 wheel covers superceded to those... volvo has no reason to make multiple designs of a 14" wheel cover anymore... if you want a new oem wheel cover for 14" wheels, that's what you get.

"What's the story behind these hubcaps?"
they grew up in a broken home. Their father was sent to jail for being ugly and their mother couldnt keep her hands off the crackpipe, so they grew up on the wrong side of the law. In and out of jail for the first 15 years of their life, DR (drivers rear) and DF ended up doing 20 to life for a botched liquor store robbery.

PF went to college and PR got pregnant. Later in life after DR and DF were paroled, they decided to straighten their life out, so they scraped together some meager funds and bought themselves some ugly 14" steel wheels. From there, their lives were notably boring, they spent their days in the same circles...living slowly. Until one day, a rogue curb stole PF from them. PF was shattered in 3 pieces and they never were the same again.

kind of a boring story if you ask me. You should read about the multi-x's and how they lived a life full of coke and whores before burning out early and languishing away in a pile of scrap metal.
