18" medeas with 215/45/18 Pirelli P Zero Rossos.
Sadly enough it snowed alot over the weekend, pretty slippery!
I'm very very pleased with my purchase.
Here's a picture.

Nice looking V50. However.....AWD or no AWD......NEVER run PZero Rossos in snow (or freezing cold for that matter). That's asking for disaster.

The wheels look great! How much did that cost incl. tires?

I bought them used. The tires are pretty much new though. I paid about US$1700.

Yeah I know! There is no grip at all . The V50 stays in garage until the snow is gone. I just took it out to take a picture of.

I think SAM (www.sambilmode.com) can get you some nice springs. http://********************/smile/emthup.gif

Yeah but they are almost twice the cost of the FWD springs. I can't think of a reason why they should be more expensive than FWD springs, it's just stupid!
Sam bilmode sells Heico springs. About $260 for the FWD springs and and $460 for the AWD springs...

What lowering springs are you getting? I have medeas as well and I'm getting the Volvo lowering springs soon(I dont want a huge drop), which lower about 20mm(.7 inch). I just want the car to look normal, not hiked up in the rear. Here's a pic of my s40 w/ medeas with the stock T5 fwd sport suspension...

I'm currently leaning towards getting the eibach springs (Pro-kit), a 30mm/30mm drop.
