Nice wagon! Black pegs look great on it. Did you wrap your side mirrors? Decided I needed mudflaps after seeing yours so I ordered a set.

No spacers or anything, right?
You have no rub? No suspension lift to fit those tires? Stock OEM Pegs or IPD?
I might have to get some semigloss black dip for the pegs with the bad finish...

Wheels: Pegs 17in
Tires: Falken Wildpeak A/T Trail 235/60/17

thanks ZZZZZZZ!

It has ss lines for a R, no spacers, and installed S60 awd springs to lower it a little, IPD sways, delrin subframe bushings. Snabb fmic, green injectors, Contrast tune, 8fab downpipe and EST cat back. She runs real nice. The R calipers bolt right up to the knuckle. Pegs are original. Also running a K16 with aftermkt wheel.

stock height, OEM pegs. no spacers and no rubbing issues. i will try and do a full lock left and right and pay attention to any noises but so far about 400 miles on these tires no issues. fitment in the rear is close enough without causing issues at stock height, idk why volvos didnt center the axle to the rear wheel wells!
maybe 2-3in higher and it might make contact. antherzoll's got bigger tires and a higher lift without issues if im not mistaken.


you can stick a tiny finger in there lol

i dont plan on doing the R caliper anytime soon but i do have to installed new brake hoses and bought SS XC hoses. i hope those will work with the R calipers.


man your setup is perfect. i need to do derlin subframe on this and my R. and IPD sways on this for sure and a do88 IC come spring.

The tire size that I'm running of 29" will rub without modification to the rear well. Young satchel and quite a few others are running 225 70 R16 which is 28.5" outside diameter without issues. On rear axle you can install up to 15 mm wheel spacers without modification but anything wider will ride the outside of a wheel well.

ordered the rear 1in Rear Strut Spacer and picked up 225/60/17 Continental VikingContact 7 winter tires. they were out of 235/60/17 and said they wont get em for another month most likely. so a slightly smaller size will do
