I understand, but aren't we all one big happy European family now? (and if it's good enough for the boss...) :D

I don't know anything about Portugese homologation, but in the German accessory catalogues the wheels are listed as being suitable "for all 300 models". Is there a Portugese Volvo club you could contact about that?

Update
The Portuguese Volvo Vintage Club had an homologation for this model with 175/65 R 14, so I am waiting now the copy of that to make new wheels registration

Since last week, the car had pass the FIVA certificate by a Portuguese FIVA oficial club
