Yes the rims are gonna be the same size in the front and back. Im going to a 18x8 rim size. The Tethys i had i think were a 17x7.5. However if anyone does wht im doing, make sure you dont go more then 8inches wide on the rims cuase it will mess up the car. Basically they wont even fit.

Im gonna put wider tires in the back. therefore i will go one size wider in the back. the back fits more cuase there isnt anything in the way like the suspension. Im gonna have to go alittle smaller tire in front so i can fit it and it dosent rub. so i will put 245 in the back, and 235 wide in the front. same size rims and everything. so the back will read 245-40-18 and the front is 235-40-18.

I don't see the benefit of mounting wider tires in the rear anyway because they only produce more drag.
The rear of the S60 is very sensitive to de wide rubber and can make a LOT of noise and JUMPS on putholes.
I drive my S60 with 18" from day one.
I have two sets with different brand tires and different offset value's.
Today I'm driving the S60 with mixed front and rear because the rear was worn.
A smaller rear track makes the car a lot more stable, I think it's between 14-20 mm smaller compared to the front now.

I'm glad that you could finally make the right decision. I just didn't think using 245 instead of 235 in the rear will give you that visual difference that you were looking for. Plus, getting wider wheels in the rear for FWD is just plain silly.
