After 60 days of procrastination...I finally settled on new alloy wheels for my '12 T5...I'm replacing the 18" OEM Sleipner wheels I purchased to upgrade the original 17" OEM Balder's...

I usually equip my vehicles with 19" alloys...but decided to stay with 18" wheels on the Volvo to enhance ride quality...

I ordered 3 different styles (one of each)...and placed them near my car...

Finally settled on a matte black 18X8...ET 45 offset...Bremmer Kraft BR09...purchased from The Tire Rack...

The wheels are basically a traditional mesh style wheel...only in the trendier matte black finish...with a small machined silver edge...

The wheels only weigh 23 pounds...and appear to be very high quality...

Now...I need to test fit one on the vehicle...and if everything checks out...order the remaining 3 wheels...

Here's a couple of pictures of the wheel unmounted...

Next...I need to get back to pricing & converting my front bumper to the R-Design parts...

Very Nice! Did you buy the TPMS sensors from TireRack as well?

I am considering getting winter tires and rims and am wondering if the TPMS sensors will work well with the Volvo.

Thanks!

I had an extra set of TPMS sensors from another set of Volvo wheels...but the Tire Rack has the proper sensors available...

I am usually not a fan of black wheels, but they look good on the white. ��

How have these held up? I'm planning on buying this very set in the next few days. Do stock Volvo center caps fit?
No problems with the wheels...the stock center caps will not fit...

Did you reply to the wrong thread? The last post here is from 2013.
