Did anyone try this yet to see if they clear the brakes without spacers?

2011/2012 oem 18" twist 5 spoke wheels found on the new s60

It's not a direct swap. Does not fit without milling the center bore from any wheel for the new S60.

2012 S60= 63.4mm
2001-2009 S60 = 65.1mm

Not only is the centerbore not the same (as mentioned), but the offsets on the 2011+ S60 wheels are far too high for the S60R/V70R. I'd advise against milling the centerbore on the wheels, as it will reduce the resale value of the wheels and there is no guarantee of doing it correctly. Your best bet is to run a machined spacer/adapter to not only reduce the wheel offset, but also to adapt the centerbores on the wheel (63.4mm) and hub (65.1mm) sides. Contact me if you need these spacer/adapters.

that's horrible! :p the wheels look great on the RD, but not the R. It just doesn't fit the curves of the car. Also, isn't that sort of counterproductive to take a "poser R's" wheels and put them on a real R? :p

I actually like the look as well, but I'll never buy them for the R. I'd rather put that money into coilovers :D
