I've only seen 2 volvos that had steel rims. This one and an 80 year old lady I'm waiting on to die so I can buy her car.

Other than those you see them on the lower end economy cars here.

Steve, is that a recent photo? Do you still have snow?

All T5s should have been equipped with Columbas or later on (S/V70) with Perfos. But the base trims were widely equipped with steelies with plastic hubcaps. Less so in countries where cars are generally cheap (US, Germany), more so where they are pricey (Skandinavia, Austria, Italy).

I had them on my '96 wagon but they weren't equipped from the factory. I used them for snow tires when I lived in Colorado. Same hub caps too. They were purchased by the previous owner who was obsessed with keeping everything "correct".

Dead of winter. We are in full bloom, no snow in April or May this year
