Anybody already have them on their S60? If yes, please post pic.

19"??? Wow...I am not sure. You will definitely get them to rub when you turn the wheel but I am not even sure they would clear the fenders. What is the aspect ratio of such tire? "20"?

What is the width of the rim??? I put aftermaket 18s on my car and it was a pain to find a pattern that would fit. From what i found out.. The widest that the width of the rim could be would be 8.0, most 19 and 20 inch rims are 8.5 and that would present a problem. Do u know if the BBS rims are an offset 5 bolt rim????

I am not sure on the width. These are the rims they have on the Volvo PCC Sedan...I guess this will be the new 2003 S60R if I am not mistaken...



The 19-inch BBS magnesium wheels are the same ones used on the Volvo S40 British Touring Car Championship race car, and they are shod with 245/35R19 tires. (Photo courtesy of Volvo Cars North America, Inc.)

You are not going to see this huge wheel when the car comes out. From what I have "heard". 18" will be the largest wheel available for the S60R.

Plus, the one in the pic looks more like one of those center lock one. Not sure if any factory car will ever use that istead of the traditional lug nuts.
TSW makes wheels with the one nut feature. Don't know why though, Have you ever had the need to switch from summer to snow tires in 3 seconds?

And to get them to fit on the S40 it took a lot of cutting. Look at the thickness difference on the front fenders of the stock car vs. BTCC.

19" is possible on the S60.
The outside sizes are not very different from the 18" wheels.
I think the tire is 235/35-19 I think.
The rim should not be wider than 8J.

I have 19inch wheels on my s60 19 by 9 with 235 35 19 and I have no wheel rub, as I did when I had the stock wheels on. Its all about the offset
