Beautiful, congratulations! Can you comment on the ride with the 22's? I worry about it being too rough, even with the 4 corner air suspension, plus the $2500 tire replacement cost worries me. BUT, they really make that car.

Tire replacement cost won't be $2,500 if you go from 275/35R22 to 285/35R22. The tire size that comes with the car is made by just one company which is why it is so expensive. At 285/35R22, you can find tires starting at $130.

Exactly! Plus wider tires look better too :D

That definitely makes them much more bearable!

Thanks Malu59RT, But I'll tell you that there is nothing to worry about the ride being too rough and with the 4 corner AS, I didn't feel or detect anything rough about it, even with the 22s, that are stunning!!! Regarding the cost factor, I agree with the other posts quoted above and prefer to think that other options will be had in the future - and that's where it is, at least for me, in the future!!! ;)

Goregous. Makes me stomach waiting the extra 4 months for the R. Is it just the reflection or is the grill chrome/metal plated?
Thanks Triggerhappy and the wait, although trying at times, has bee worth it!!! :D The look on the grill is caused by the reflection, it's black...

Beautiful - congratulations!
Thank you 26GAP! ;)

Looks great, i wish my r design had the 22's on it, the dealer had one on the lot with 22's but was sold already. Couldn't complain though to find a r design on the lot without the wait. I thought about buying the 22's as they can be had for around $2300 with tires direct from Volvo, but debating to just go to a completely different style wheel in a 22.
