I was at the dealer checkin in rims and snow tire options and he mentioned that Volvo has steel rims that would fit the R Design (he said it would not for 2013s). Can anyone confirm this?
Steel Rims Part #31362410 - 16" rims with 215-55-16's. Thanks.

I've personally never heard of 16s on R-Designs but I could very well be wrong.

Discount Tire here in MN quoted me 16" rims and 215-60-R16 as the cheapest set up. Told me their system was never wrong on rims when I questioned if 16s would fit the R Design.... I still haven't decided if I trust them. I got a similar quote from Tire Rack but with 17 in Rims. That might be the safer way to go but shipping is $$$

The front brakes on the 2013+ are larger than the earlier R-Ds.

I went to my mechanic and tested fitted the 16" Steel Rim Part #31362410 w/General Altimax Arctic 215-55-16's on my 2012 R-Design and it cleared both front and rear brakes.
