I have always liked the wheels on your car. To me they look like interlocking gears.
Funny, they look like the chrome wheels on all the old Hot Wheel toy cars. Plasticky (is that a word), personally the least likeable of all the rims as it makes the Volvo look like a cheap Chinese made toy or a set of heavy shoes. Great price on the wagon though!
