Does anyone know of any 16" steel wheels available for the newer cars. I am looking for a cheap solution for wheels, but want something at least 16". Anybody have an S60 with steelies in 16"?

I bought a set of used 16" steel wheels with Yokohama snow tires last week and it fit no problem.<P> <IMG SRC="http://www.trd3000gt-revscene.cityslide.com/i/4/40/409/4098/40981/409815/s74.jpg"> <P>

Ben,<P>You have me intrigued. Is there still enough snow in Canada such that you need to have the winter tires/wheels on in June? <P>Just curious,<BR>-ema<P><BR> <BLOCKQUOTE><font size="1" face="Verdana, Arial">quote:</font><HR>Originally posted by Ben from Canada:<BR><B>I bought a set of used 16" steel wheels with Yokohama snow tires last week and it fit no problem.<P> <IMG SRC="http://www.trd3000gt-revscene.cityslide.com/i/4/40/409/4098/40981/409815/s74.jpg"> <P></B><HR></BLOCKQUOTE><P>

Ben, <P>That is a nice looking S60 you have! Those steel wheels actually look pretty decent. Did you notice a big improvement in poor weather conditions?<P>-Drew

Do you have any pics of the wheels without hubcaps? Also, I assume you got them from Volvo? Or did you get them from Tire Rack?

I don't have a picture of the steel rims without hubcaps but I think the pictures with the 17" OE wheels will help you a little bit on how black wheels look like on the S60.<P>
