For some reason, TIRERACK doesn't recognize 19" wheel fitments for the S40, but they DO for the C30?? Any ideas why??? Here's a link and photo to the only decent (in my opinion) 19" that work for the C40
FYI: They are a 19x8 with a +45 offset (backspacing 6.29")

PIC OF THEM ON AN AUDI:


I think I saw a guy running these (size?) on an S60, not sure though

This whole wheel dilema is REALLY chapping my @$$


Thanks, Guys

Weight: 29.5lbs.

They look really good but they are extremely heavy... just something to think about.

Yeah... they do look good, but performance and probably drivability would definitely take a hit.

I am guessing R19 tires would add quite a few pounds per corner, too.

I'll admit, they look nice. the size , offset etc. is within fitment range . 30 lbs is indeed a lot. But when you concider a stock 18 x 8 Peg is like 28 lbs, this doesn't seem too bad. IMHO , if you like these and show is your goal , go for them. If performance is also very important ,you might want to concider a lighter wheel.

Thus why i dont like pegs either lol. I dont think Volvo is capable of making a light weight wheel
haha

OEM Medeas (18") are 24.3 lbs -- not bad. But expensive new (I picked up a set used). And, of course, 18" tires are heavier than 19".

I believe the 18" version of the ASAs at Tirerack do fit the S40. Probably lighter, too. I considered them when I was looking.

Re: (LAGOM)
