I have a 2001 V70 T5, delivered in 12/2000, with the P6s as the 17" option. There has been very little, if any info, on these tires in the 17" size from either Volvo or Pirelli. What little can be gleaned suggests that Volvo foisted a "family type" tire on its performance oriented customers, if they wanted 17" tires. Also, since this appears to be an OEM tire exclusive to Volvo, the replacements are $260/per-(I've had to buy 2 new ones(my wife and high curbs). Does anyone have the same sentiments, or further info on these tires?
