I'm thinking about leasing a s60 t5 in the next couple of months. I was going to get it with the 17" wheels, but have been told not to because of potholes. I live in NJ and the roads can sometimes be rough. Any suggestions?
I live in PA (where the roads are as bad or worse than NJ) and neve rhad a problem with my 17" Tethys alloys and P6 Pirellis.<p>IMO, a T-5 without 17" alloys is not as attractive and the handling suffers.<p>Yannis
Get the 17's and just be careful when approaching potholes. You normally drive slow over a pothole you see anyways. Unfortunately, the potholes you don't see may cause an issue. I've bent 2 17's last summer due to a hidden pothole going around a nice right hand sweeper at 80mph. Didn't see it at all and it's real hard to see when in another lane. <p>Get the 17's and you'll be happy.<p>RJ
