Default Volvo wheels on a T4

Chaps, had a look at what was involved in putting Volvo rims on the T4. I’ve found adaptors and after some trial fitting they will clear the fenders at this stage. Wheels I’ll use are the XC70 16” wheels.

I'd be VERY scared!!!!!
The Volvo has a rating of 570 for it's wheels....
Even the lightest T4 is WAY over that!!! (800 is about the lowest)

Once you start with "adapters", you are going over the top, especially legally!

Ask your insurance company what they think about these.....

I missed that reply!

That's why "Rally Cars" have painted on the underside "T'Other Way Up!"
