I've got some 16 inch Volvo wheels that I'm not sure what model they come factory/aftermarket on. Could someone please help me here? The guy I bought them from said they came off of his V70 or C70, I can't quite remember.

A clue will be the Part Number which is cast right into the aluminum in the rear of the wheel, along with the Size (Diameter/Width/Offset) and the Country of Origin.

Get that Part Number and then go to eBay and see if someone else (or multiple people) is trying to sell that same exact Volvo Wheel, and they may (should) reveal to you which years and models those wheels actually fit; after all, that's how they have to market their wheels. Hopefully, you'll find multiple occurrences of the same information which should give you the confidence that what you see is correct.

For instance, here's somebody's ad for a 16" Volvo Wheel 392859 which looks somewhat like yours:

16" Volvo Alloy Wheel 392859

But it fits a 1995-97 960 (close; but no cigar !) Mere looks don't count for much.

That approach should allow you to quickly hit paydirt. I've used that technique on several parts . . . . including wheels.
