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?

I have those wheels on my 740. They're just chipped to hell thanks to the person who had them before me.

Matt 02-06-2017 02:35 PM

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.

Is there any info on approx number of SEs out there? Does yours still have the proper fogs?

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.
