There's a 14 that looks just like the dersus. Besides a smaller center cap..

And does omega actually count as a wheel/did they make a version of this as a wheel or hubcap only.. Aptly named though.

also need a space between each image for clarity.
Moving to showroom for now, possibly to articles later.

I need to lower the front again, and i need an adjustable panhard rod to get the back end in line properly (its been dropped 40mmbtw). Other than that, i still have full lock and everything, lol.

yes, he doesn't have a picture of nova on there.

this is from ebay so in a few month's it may disappear so someone needs to get a better picture but these are nova

Nice job Jumpy, didn't know mine were called multi-x. They were originally on a 90 or 91 240 i had a few years ago. I painted the spokes black this past summer and used newer style Volvo plastic centers on them. Have had these wheels on a number of 2 7 and 940's. First time i put a set of Virgos, i think that's what the 240t wheels were called, on a 760t i had the wife was ready to go visit her daughter, tried to go in the 760t and it would'nt budge. The rims were stuck on the front calipers. lol Went in her 240 and proceeded to put the 760 rims back on when i got back home....
