I am looking for some additional options to fit my 02 V70XC without messing up the speedo or AWD. I currently am running 215/60/16, but have an option for 235/45/17 from an S60 (Thor I believe). Will the tire and rims bolt on and if they do will mess anything else up.<p>I did the math and looks like the 235 will make the car ride an inch lower.<p>Also anyone have a range of tires that I can investigate without rubbing while turning etc.<p>Thanks<br>

Re: Additional Wheel and Tire options for 02 V70XC (lavy4315)

Rims from any other P2 Volvo will bolt on without issue. The bolt pattern and hub diameter are the same. There's a lowered XC70 around here riding on 18's that looks pretty sweet.<p>That said, the tire outer diameter issue you raise is real, and you're likely to want something with a bigger sidewall than the stock V70/S60 tires to maintain accurate speedo/odo readings.
