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"?

Ben,

You have me intrigued. Is there still enough snow in Canada such that you need to have the winter tires/wheels on in June?

Just curious,

Ben,

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?

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?

You are right, no snow in June in Canada. I put the snow tires on my car because I need to get my wheels painted to black.

Thanks, I didn't had a chance to try the tires on snow but my first impression with these tires is they are very noisy.

It a used set or winter tires/wheels and I think the previous owner bought it from the dealer. 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.
