They're C70 optional wheels. Tritons I think they're called? He is using spacers...

The rims are from this past summer group buy. Still have some sets left if you are interested.
Yeah I know what you mean about the 780. I' haven't bothered to register it since I purchased it in 2002. No time to drive it as a pleasure vehicle (Sunday driver). I refuse to drive it otherwise so it's been sitting in my garage ever since. I think this coming summer
is going to happen though. Cheers
No prob man, you have two very nice Volvos! So, how much would a set of those rims run? I'd love to have a set, but I'm sure they're not peanuts... They're ment for the RWD offset, correct? So they won't fit on my V90 properly? What size tires do they take? Man, those would look sweet on my 960! As for the 780, geez, ya gotta drive it! At least once in a while, lol My V90 is my new baby, although the 964 is an absolutely mint Florida car, it's just not as good looking as the dark blue V90. My last baby was my '91 745T, but a guy wanted to pay me top dollar for it and I couldn't have two summer cars, so I sold it I know what you mean about the 960 seats, the seats in my 964 are the older 960/940 style and are nice, but the seats in my V90 form to my body so much better. The bolsters are bigger.

Thats correct. Rear wheel drive only. The offset is 20mm. I run 225 45 17's with the rear fender lip rolled. 215's fit with no problem. Price is $1000 + shipping. If you don't have all the money now, I can take a deposit to hold a set for you. As for the 780. I get to sit in the drivers seat once a month. I let the engine idle for a good 30 mins to keep the moisture from settling in.

My car, the day I bought it...

And then, my car, a few weeks and +73HP/82NM later.
I know, I know. I forgot to but the center caps on the rims to cover the holes.
They are Pegasus by the way...

04 S40 LSE



Rims are 17" Konig Monsoons with BF Goodrich G-Force Sport tires. Wish I could get the dual exhaust system from IPD.

Okeydokey then, may as well post here even though I think most people would've seen this pikky already ... she's hopefully on her way to the panelbeater in the next few weeks, and the majority of the remaining glitches will be Cleared Up (maybe I can post a comparo pic then):

30 minutes of idling?!!?? I wouldn't imagine that being good for it... Better than not starting it up, but not great for it. I'd at least rev it up a bit through there, but there's nothing like a good, decently hard drive, with fresh gas. Keeps the bearings, suspension, transmisison, BRAKES, operating and lubed. Please please please actually take it for a good hour or so drive once a month, it'll be in MUCH better shape, and won't need a suspension and brake overhaul when you finally do want to get it out of the garage. Old gas = bad, crusty, gunky, icky, sticky, yuck yuck.

Thankyou sir; however, I still take issue with the fact that you chose your 242's paint-colour after me, got it painted after I got mine done, and yet yours was finished a couple of years before mine!!
Well, maybe I don't really care that much ...
[Despite the photo, it's actually a very similar colour to yours, particularly in direct sunlight]
