You should be able to easily find correct wheels that will fit the S60 without having to take off the guide pins. Like someone mentioned above, check Tirerack.Com. Tirerack has some great winter wheel packages, and Swedespeed has a link to Tirerack as well.<P>-Drew

Like someone mentioned above, check Tirerack.Com. Tirerack has some great winter wheel packages, and Swedespeed has a link to Tirerack as well.<P>I ordered snow tires and wheels from the Tire Rack. They were Sport Edition Fox 5 wheels with Dunlap Winter Sport M2 tires. The original lug nuts fit this application for my S60 2.4T with 16 inch wheels. To mount the wheels, the guide pins need to be removed and this is easily done with a 10 mm open wrench. The wheel is also shipped with what is called a hubcentric ring already installed. It is just a plastic ring that helps center the wheel on the hub. Removing the guide pins is not a big deal and you can re-install them when you remount your original wheels. My delivered price for all of this was about $850.00. If you order the complete package from the Tire Rack, you get mounting and balancing for free, which offsets the shipping charge.<P>I hope this helps you.<P>Regards,<P>Jim<P>-Drew</B><HR></BLOCKQUOTE><P>
