Volvo 122S Wagon project rolls on seventeens!

Bigger is better, right?


It has been rolling on 15 X 5.5 inch wheels for a few years and it looks and drives well. However, I thought I should do something different for chits and giggles.

I found a set of the tried and true 17 X 7 Dodge Charger steel wheels and had them powder coated silver and wrapped with a set of 215/50/17 performance tires.

Lowered about three inches here. I don’t want to go any lower as I would have to start using shorter shocks etc.

Besides, I don’t like the look of cars sitting on their rockers, looks like the suspension is broken. The rear suspension with stock springs was rather soft even with new OE springs, bushings and shocks. Now with the shorter firmer springs the car drives absolutely great.
