I'm going out to take the wheel off and get a better look, watch this space...

Re: Pud the Celebration - previously known as R2...

The wheels look good.

If they were Volvo optional then even better, not as if they are tacky aftermarket wheels.

With 90's Volvo's becoming more rare it is nice to have the option to swap wheels.
