Looking to run some 19's on an S40 T5 AWD. What's the size that will fit without rolling fenders? However, will most likely be putting on some KW V1's on it... Looking to be pretty flush... This is for my buddies car. Anyone know how to get flush without coilovers? Also, is there any recommendations that you guys could throw out there for coilovers and wheels?

Welcome.

Search is your friend (there are a few recent threads pertaining to exactly this).
Welcome? I'm over 500 posts deep lol

Anyway, hi.

Search can suck it. I did a very brief search.

But wheels... If you're looking to spend a little coin, I've always wanted to see some CCW LM5s on an S40. I think they'd be killer with gunmetal centers.

I'd say 8x19 or 8.5x19. Tire size then 225/35R19 or 235/35R19. The 235s will most likely require some wheel arch work.

I had to do fender work with 18's and HR's. Just except the fact you will have to do some fender work and knock that out first.

Riding stock on 19" x 8 iForged and I don't get roll - unless there's 2 people in the back (with a subwoofer).
Lowered you'll def need fender work. May be selling my rims - pm me for details.

19x8 high offset are safe, 8.5 moderate offset will require work. S40 fenders are so retarded I recommend people roll em even on stock wheels :p
Once rolled you don't even have to worry bout it and its a simple procedure. Going flush without a drop looks goofy. If u want a stanced setup prepare to slam, tuck, and roll if need be ;)

Alright, I'm not against rolling fenders.. Just more time and money. Probably going to get some KW V1's and still deciding on wheels... Nobody really put out an appropriate offset for like 19x8, what would (should) I be looking at?

40+ is conservative, 30's is aggressive. But don't forget width plays a key role in how the offset affects the wheel stance inward/outward.

Depends on how flush you want to be, stock wheels are not flush, Volvos offset is 52.5mm, by changing the offset you can bring the edge of the wheel closer to the edge of the fender,if you go too aggressive you will hit the fender liner.

On a V50 it takes a 23mm extension (outside edge of wheel)in the front to be flush
In the rear it takes a 30mm extension to be flush
8" et 30 gives a 28mm extension(too much)
8" et35 23mm (flush in front 5mm spacer in rear, both pretty close to flush)Might need minor rolling
8" ET 40 18mm (safe and conservative, no worries)
8" ET45 13mm (not enough)
Does that help?:D
