Re: 205-60-15 TIRES (volvos70turbo)

The 225/45 17s only rubbed slightly on our S70 and didn't seem to rub at all on my V70. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://********************/smile/emcrook.gif" BORDER="0"> <p>The 205 17s on my V70 don't rub at a full turn either, I would think the 205 would be just the same on the 15s, just a taller side wall....probably close to the same overall height.<p>The stock size is 195/65 15 right? would it have to be a 205/55 15 to keep the same speedo calibration? Or do you have to go to a 205/55 16 to keep the same tire height and keep the speedo accurate?<p>

I'm actually unsure what the stock size is for the base s70/Glt S70.<br>Can anyone tell me what size tire they are using on their 15 inchers?<br>Oh yeah, thanks for the help Caddy.

anytime.<p>195/60 15 is the stock size on our GLT. <p>If you swing by TireRack.com their menu selections will also tell you what is the stock size.

Yes.<br>205/55/15 will fit just fine. No rubbing. In fact I believe 205/55/15 is a closer match to the stock 195/60/15 than 205/60/15. Enjoy!
