Hey guys-<br>I'm ready to run my brembo front calipers on the s60 and had a question about winter wheel fitment. I use my stock thors as my winter wheels and I want your opinion on whether or not they will fit (with a spacer obviously) before I mount the brakes. They're 17x7.5 and the offset is +49. Thanks.

Re: Wheel fitment question (shagginwagon)

Possibly. <br>They have enough offset that you can go with a 5mm spacer but no guarantees that they still will clear the calipers!<br>I'll be happy to look carefully at my set which are on my 2000R but it would be a guess whether they will fit a P2 R as I don't have one lying around, the car I have for sale is not near me right now.

Re: (JRL)

Stock R wheels are ET46 I believe, so your ET49 are at least 3mm too close into the caliper, and that's assuming the wheel spoke design clears the caliper in the first place. So you probably have to go 10mm as you stated for sure clearance. 5mm might not do it w/the Thor's.
