I have two volvo 850 turbos and have had to replace three wheels because of potholes. In fact I do not know anyone who owns a volvo 16 inch wheel who has not had to replace it at one time or another. My only advice is -- watch carefully. My parents, who live in new york traded their 16 inch for 15 inch steel.

N.B. I have a Jaguar XJ-S with 16 inch wheels that I drive on the same roads and I have never had any wheel problems. You might also want to contact a wheel repair shop. I currently have three spare wheels, which I know that I will need, repaired for $100 each.
