1981 Volvo DL, GL and GLT
Air dam (front spoiler)
Air dams can negatively influence the normal flow of air to the front wheel brakes. Therefore, special
light alloy wheel rims or steel wheel rims of 1980 or 1981 year models + ventilated brake disks at the
front wheels must be used in conjunction with the air dam.
Special wheel rims
Only special wheel rims, tested and approved by AB Volvo, are suitable for use with air dams.
Current legislation prohibits the use of this tire other than as a temporary replacement for a punctured
tire. In other words, it must be replaced as soon as possible by a standard tire.
Roadholding, etc., might be affected with the "Special Spare" in use. Do not therefore exceed 50 mph
