All nice wheels. If I were to step up to a 18" I'd have to look to the after-market. But in the 17" range IMO the OEM Tethys wheels can't be beat. I was so happy to finally be able to purchase a car with excellent wheels from the manufacturer. I've owned 20 cars (all German and 3 U.S. suv's) and with few exceptions I didn't like the wheels for those cars that were offered from the manufacturer.
I ordered a T5 with the tethys wheels and agree that they are really nice looking. I imagine they are tough to clean though. Does anyone here know much about dustless brake pads? Would you recommend them?
The 17-inch Tethys do look really good on the S60. I can imagine that those wheels are a pain to clean. The 17-inch Arrakis rims for the S80 T6 must be a nightmare to clean though.
I like the first picture on top. I think that 18-inch Moda R4's would look excellent on the S60 if someone wanted to step-up in size.
One thing you have to remember about dustless brake pads is that they usually have a harder compound. Volvo OEM brakepads produce a lot of dust because you get significant braking performance. Metallic brake pads will wear out the rotors faster relative to the softer OEM type pads.
