I have the stock Pirelli 235/45's and they fit just fine. In fact, since these rims are only 7" instead of 7.5" there is a nice little buffer created by the tire that protects the rims. I might even switch up to 245/45's when the time comes. I just ordered the old school Volvo center caps and valve stems from IPD, so I might put those back on the stock Orpheus rims with some good snow shoes. Any suggestions?
