      5x108 225/50/17 Fusion wheels with tires, 300 bucks.
      https://york.craigslist.org/wto/d/re...850292341.html


      An 04XC70 for 900 bucks. Looks fair, and needs a little effort. Maybe it would be OK?

      A set of tellus with good tires (well... tread but maybe not brand- I guess at least they’re not doojobby AT model from North Korea) for 175 bucks. I think I remember w20/14 production. That's wicked cheap, and they're clean.

      Either a heavy foot, summers, or angle gear issues? That car looks very nice.

      Don't get me wrong, red wagons are my jam, but 19 grand for a non turbo fwd p3 without any good options (outside of R Design)? I just hate how p3 v70's are all so base model-y, and those two tone seats don't really do it for me, on any Volvo. If it was a t6 awd R Design, I'd be dangerously looking to take out more student loans for it, luckily that's possible with a V60 instead.

      Did all P80R come with the leather folio with the R logo? Or is that from a P2R?

      I decided to go after the next car in my used car bucket list. I picked up a 2007 Land Rover LR3!

      This thing is a tank! It needs a good bath though.

      What do you guys think about the price on this?
      Seems high given the mileage, but the exterior looks to be in good shape. I hate those wheels.

      3 owners according to the seller.

      LOL, I guess I’m a party of 1 on the wheels.

      To me, the maintenance history is more important than the mileage. Obviously, it was owned by an enthusiast at some point. Does the seller have a detailed service history? If not, then definitely overpriced. Driver’s seat looks toast.

      I'm a fan of Amalthea wheels, I actually want mine powder coated anthracite too. I think they'd look sharp on the 601 wagon.

      I like clean amaltheas too, but not anthracite. They pop on that picture because they're silver.

      That's sad. I've got an extra set of pegs waiting refinish that are going on the XC in a few days.
      I've got an extra set of Thors that Justin gave me he was going to scrap.
      I'd love to say yes, but can't. I'm wheeled out unless they clear R brakes so I can get my pegs refinished.
      You'd make money (even if just 100) if you brought em to Carlisle. A dollar to trash a tire at costco...

      I'm excited to run the really clean set of teyths I picked up before winter. They'll stay autox wheels though so I won't get nearly as many pictures with them as with the amaltheas. I agree that the silver does pop, something about the large 'face' around the lugs and center cap puts me off the most about amaltheas, I still like the unique spoke design though.

      Good choice. 22 lbs is pretty light on the Volvo wheel spectrum.

      What's your Velcro rubber selection?

      Haven't cleaned them up yet, stored back home in MN for now until autocross season starts. I'd like to preemptively coat them in some sort of wax/wheel coating to facilitate cleaning off the obscene amount of brake dust that they'll accumulate. Idk what I'll use though, haven't looked into it yet because classes and the new internship. The amalthea's were painful to clean so I'm going to have to meditate before and after cleaning the tethy's LOL

      I've decided on RE71R's strictly for autocross duty. My dad got a KILLER coupon from talking with a Costco salesman. Hoping that I'll get 2 seasons out of them with a proper alignment and ample rotations between sessions. I want to pick up a set of zline AS's for summer duty on the Amalthea's once my Firestone specials get dusted, that might be awhile thought because they only have 1 season of driving on them!
