2005 S60 T5 w/ Enkei OR52 17x7 Anthracite - new pics!

Just slapped these on my ride and they are sick!<IMG SRC="http://i63.photobucket.com/albums/h127/darylkaiser30/2005%20Volvo%20S60%20T5/IMGP0163.jpg" BORDER="0"><IMG SRC="http://i63.photobucket.com/albums/h127/darylkaiser30/2005%20Volvo%20S60%20T5/IMGP0164.jpg" BORDER="0"><BR><BR>

Enkei? they have something for S60? Good news to me. How does it fit? Is that the only rims for 5X108? <br>BTW, what is your tyre size? 215/45/17? Yours don't look too thin at all.

Hard to see, pics are a bit too dark.<br>I would paint that center ring to match the rest of the wheel

There are plenty of other trim styles and sizes (18x8, etc.), but I'm happy with the ride and handling characteristics of the stock size (17x7). I'm thinking about going with some Toyo Proxes 4's when I replace these tyres, and I might step up to larger P245/45R17 when I do. A little extra rubber never hurts! <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://********************/smile/emthup.gif" BORDER="0">

There are also some center caps that can be ordered instead of or in conjunction with the plates that I already have. They only come in chrome and gold or silver finishes though, which contradicts the anti-bling theme I'm going for here... <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://********************/smile/emthdown.gif" BORDER="0">

Re: (Nebor)

Well, you are certainly entitled to your opinion...<IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/rolleyes.gif" BORDER="0"> I like them, and that's all that really matters now isn't it? Besides, they weight about half of what stock wheels weigh. Makes a difference...

You know the weight of those rims? <p>Other Enkei rims that fit the Volvo are as follows:<br>* RS6 - 17x7 = 20.2lbs<br>* RS5 - 17x7 = 19.8lbs<br>* CDR9 - 17x7 = 21.6lbs<p>I like the RS7 at 17.9lbs for 17x7 but it doesn't fit.<br>

I got them because my original (2001) rotors were completely shot and the Powerslots were cheaper than the Volvo OEM rotors. Both the OEMs and Powerslots are vented (the rear rotors are solid but brake dust isn't a problem in the back anyway...) and won't reduce the amount of dust generated. Chaning the pads will make a bigger difference up front...<p>It should be noted that brake dust is not much of a problem with these wheels. The dust wipes off very easily compared to the original wheels. A strong jet of water will usually remove most of it if you're in a hurry and don't havetime to thoughouly clean your wheels. I did wax them when I first got them though...<p><BR><BR>

Is that a gunmetal finish? The car screams to be lowered. Looks a little funky with the current ride height. I agree with JRL, the center cap needs to be painted to match the wheel. Blends in much better imo. Other than that, nice wheels! <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://********************/smile/emthup.gif" BORDER="0">
