Those are some Berg wheels, 17x8,5, 2 piece, with some 5x108 to 6x139.7 adapters, which were pain in the ass to make.
But this idea was kinda genius, because i bought the wheels for 80euros, and there are much more cool SUV rims out there that cost nothing B)

And yep, this is my car and also my inspiration, also a T5 inside, greetings from Latvia ;)

Man I really love those, thanks for clearing that up. 80 euros is a steal man. Where'd you get the adapters from?

many people have those wheels, they're super common on the 7's and 9's.

Thanx for posting this car - I've been trying to imagine my 945 in Satin Black. Yes I know this one's gloss !

Nothing wrong with my paintwork - except it's Silver !!! TOO many Silver cars in this world.

Car has been lowered 40mm ( needs a bit more ) with Bilsteins all round. Soon to be getting Jag 7.5" x 16" alloys - just to be different.

Oh yes, and different ? Getting an Eaton supercharger to replace the turbo and all the squitter that goes with it.

I do not think there was ever an exact figure put out there from Volvo... Someone correct me if I am wrong though. To my understanding there were roughly 1,500 or so in total.
