I'm a Volan guy myself. Sounds like "Vulcan" to me. I like Star Trek.

The titans are classic but I really think the volans look better on the car.

Titans bend easily.

I find S80 17 inch wheels are harder to bend.

Five spokes seem to be classic, whether Torq-thrusts on a muscle car, or Titans (or Pegs) on a Volvo.


Current Volvos:
1998 V70 T5, 112k sat 5 years, still in mechanical coma
2004 XC90 T6 AWD: 186k, 60 on transaxle
1998 POS70 N/A: DD/training aid, 236k but really about 240k, I think...ABS module

My thoughts exactly! And besides they look so good in person. The Volans to me are a less attractive version of the Interceptors I had on my 2002 S80 T6 In my honest opinion. I ordered the Interceptors on that car BTW. June


My Volvo cars owned
1989 740 GLT ordered
1994 850 4door standard shift ordered
1996 960 ordered
1998 S90 ordered totalled after 3 weeks
1998 V70 GT dealer stock car
2002 S80 T6 ordered totalled
2004 S80 T6 dealer stock car and current car owned
