    Not crazy about them in white. Otherwise, they look fine.

    Dude, I've spent a lot of time envisioning wheels on Volvos, and I've come to the conclusion that basically, the simpler, the better. The wheels on the maroon 242 just don't seem to fit the car. However, the ones on the red 242 and the crazy green one are pretty great (in my opinion of course!). I'm guessing those are.....oh shit, I can't even remember anymore...:(

    What color is the car?

    I like the Compomotives, but white wheels are very, very tough to sucessfully pull off without looking like a clown.

    Which blue? Avus (darker) or Estoril (lighter) ??

    Ah no matter, really. Either way, neither can pull off a white wheel IMHO. But if that's what blows your hair back, rock the casbah. :bigthumb:

    I am familiar with Estoril. :big grin:

    To me, white wheels are solely the realm of a dedicated track car.

    Yeah well, from what I remember of your car, it's not like you'd be around/near them long enough to hear them say a damn thing. :rofl:

    Good luck with the wheel choice. :)
