Re: Wanted 2007 Volvo, S80/V8 17x7 rims (kentis19)

Presently, I have 18x8 rims mounted on the car. Because I live in the midwest, potholes are not my friend but cause damage to the rims. I want to go to smaller rims to have a large tire profile between the rim and road. Please advise.

what kind of car? what's on there now? As long as you've got a 45 series sidewall or better, and you're careful, you should be OK. At least I have been in Michigan and our roads are much worse <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/smile.gif" BORDER="0">

The tires on my 2007 Volvo, S80/V8 AWD are 245/40-18 series. Driving this car in Chicagoland has resulted in four (4) bent rims. I even ran over a pothole on Interstate I65 in Indiana. I'm thinking about replacing the 18" rims with 17" rims with 245/45-17 tires to increase the tire profile. Please advise.
