F**k me. Don't tell me I need brand new lug bolts to fit these wheels on. Can I use the standard bolts on my car now? :?:

Language please!

Who said you need new lug nuts? These cars don't have lug nuts they should have bolts, and I am using the standard chromed lug bolts from Volvo.

Love both those cars, and I have to say they both look marvelous in white. I don't think I have seen many P80's in white up here (would look constantly dirty in the winter for the 8 months a year we have it!!).

Both rims also look great on the cars. I have just had my 'winter' Thor rims powder coated in preparation for October to put on. I do think they look rather good, especially on the white of JRL's car.

Lowered stance looks good, but backing off the driveway would rip off the front bumper if the car was lowered. Again that winter thing too with the deep snow.
