    Winter tire season is soon here, and I wanted to clean up the steelies I have studded tires on. I didn't bother even washing them before putting them away last spring, and they sat under a tarp outside all summer. Plus they weren't exactly in good shape from the beginning.
    The steelies are so rusted that they chip all around in 1-2 mil thick pieces, they need to be sandblasted to even consider painting them. I don't care about them that much, even if they are Italian made original Volvo steelies. The rusty steelies look so shit I don't want to put them even on this beater of a Volvo.

    So I got these for a whopping 60€

    They are original Volvo alloys from something, pretty shoddily spray painted but supposedly round and good.
    I'll probably throw some more black paint on them and some clear coat so they'll last atleast a single winter without chipping paint.

    Also I wanted to add some "contrast" on the completely stock appearance of the red brick.
    So what could I possibly add to the outside of a boxy Volvo?

    On both sides, of course.

    I've got another dumb visual mod ordered, worth about 5€.

    always thought those prancing moose emblems were funny but its even more appropriate on a red brick. The Saab troll stickers are also funny.

    Here the moose stickers are like kind of an unofficial bullshit symbol of Volvo enthusiasts, mostly the younger guys. Others might think it's dumb, and they're probably right a lot of the time. Jävla Volvoraggare

    Would you like to drift around on snowy roads in an RWD brick? - I would.
