Default 15" steels

Got two, need two more for my 240. Tire conditon isn't important, any condition considered since I'm on a budget and they'll be getting new tires anyway.

Cheers

Alex

An endless list of fixes and mods but mostly I'm proud of that funny wire loop to bypass the backdoor hinges.
Says it all really.

Near topic. Why steels? You have a silver 240 SE. In my opinion Omega alloys look good on my 240 silver SE. They are a 15" alloy interpretation of the plastic EEK wheel trims [usually] supplied with the SE.

You never know your luck with Volvo wheels. A full set of Omegas might become available at a bargain price. I got good enough prices to buy two separate sets. Summer and winter. Cushti. I am on the parent of all budgets. But tyres are wot grips the road. Wot are tires?

Long story short I like the look of satin black steels on my 240. I've run on alloys before but, short of a decent set of Virgos, I'm happier in the knowledge that I can just whip them off and repaint them in an afternoon than having to recondition something which I've curbed whilst manoeuvring a boat around.

No accounting for taste!

Well off topic, but you're on the Isle of Wight?
Whereabouts? Haven't seen a 240 over there for a while now.

Am back this weekend with my beasty 960 so if you see a silver one hooning it up the dual, it'll be me

Cheers
