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.
