    Are these 17" rims the Sargas option rims that are priced at $550 ? I've been lead to believe the Sargas 17" are Pirelli STRs!

    I don't know if the rims I saw were the Sargas option. Perhaps they do come with Pirelli STRs. However I would think that if Volvo switched tire suppliers, all cars would come with the same brand of tire.

    since April 06. I'm very happy with them. Just need to have the
    proper air pressure. Very quiet, very good in rain and snow.

    drove an 08 with BLIS. The dealer actually said he personally thought it was not worth it and because he drove a couple other cars the last thing he'd want is to get accustomed to not looking over his shoulder in non-blis cars. And since he felt like he should always anyway, he thinks it is not worth it. I drove for about an hour with it in heavy traffic and found it mildly interesting, but wouldn't order it.
    I'm not a complete idiot. Some parts are missing.

    my car is equipped with Scorpio (of course...) and even if it's seems to be a not so bad tire, I wrote some comment about the Goog Year Wrangler HP which seems to be one of the best tire (mix type) for this type of vehicles.

    Do some of you have experience in snow and rain concitions with this Good year ?

    Other point with Scorpio, i made 25000 Kms and the front one's nearly need to be changed, it's a bit early for me.... i expected to run at leaast 35000 to 40000 kms.
