Love the Ixion wheels, but 20" is just a bit too much for me. If they were 19" it would be perfect!

But overall it looks awesome! :D

Nice and clean! Nice and big! ...I just don't know if I could ever pull off 20's here in Manila with our crappy roads..:(
Or here in Portland, OR with our crappy roads. I think Manila or Iraq, is our "Sister City".

Like the wheels, btw. I would need around 40 for the tires at minimum, though.

With wheels like that you have to be just about right there for me . . .



But then again I can't imagine driving with that small a tire wall . . . :p

Too much wheel, too much flash. (I call those rubber band tires...) A clean car tho. With that wheel in 18's it would be great.

Anyone else hate how asymmetric wheels "point" one way on the left and the other way on the right? Make me a right and left wheel, or I'm sticking with symmetric wheels. Anyone??

Damn, looks pretty good. 20's are generally just slightly too big for my taste on these cars, but if you slammed it to where you were tucking tire it would pull it off better.

Looks amazing! They are big but clean looking. Great choice.

They bring the s40 back into looking relevant again sort of, like it belongs next to the 2012 models.

^ lol yes. It looks amazing, but my goodness, I wouldn't be comfortable with those tires. 19" or 18" would look better IMO.

Clean look = yes

Size for me = no, I have a hard enough time accepting 19" wheels on our cars. The short distance between the wheel wells and ends of the car make it look kind of squatty with huge wheels. But like I said, you have a very clean look with those so it's partially avoided.

5 spoke = heck yes! 5 or 10 with a 5 bolt pattern. None of that 7 or 14 spoke wheel trash that Volvo tries to sell their cars with.

Do you actually have air in those tires, or did you just wrap rubber around the wheel? :p Drive straight over a nail and it may poke your wheel!

If you like it, that's what matters most, it does look nice!

How many people have those tow hitches?!?!
