Volvo recently presented the first vehicle based on the new CMA platform in the form of the XC40. To coincide with the compact SUV’s market debut, HEICO SPORTIV will be launching the 21” VOLUTION® V aluminum wheel as the first individualization product on the market.

In contrast to the Volvo accessory wheel, which is optionally offered in 7.5x21” format, the VOLUTION® V sport wheel has a width of 9 inches, making it around 38 millimeters broader. This pro-vides for a chunkier appearance and allows the use of wider tires. 265/30R21 tires from HEICO SPORTIV’s technology partners Continental and Pirelli are used. The complete wheels are delivered ex-works, fully assembled and balanced.

The 9 x 21” VOLUTION® V sport wheel unites an iconic and timeless design – in time-honored manner. It is manufactured in a low-pressure casting process, followed by elaborate machining to remove ex-cess material. This results in a weight saving of around one kilogram compared with the series-produced wheel – to the benefit of the driving dynamics. The wheel offset which was perfectly chosen by HEICO SPORTIV’s engineers ensures flush alignment with the bodywork, thereby rounding off the sporty appearance. Another distinguishing feature is a separate stainless steel HEICO SPORTIV emblem inlaid into the flange.

The 9x21” VOLUTION® V sport wheel will initially be available in the color combination “Diamond-Cut, Black”; further color combinations are planned. Besides the new Volvo XC40, the HEICO SPORTIV alloy wheel is also deliverable for the models XC60, S90, V90, V90 CC, XC90 and the new V60.
