I have an 08 XC70 with the factory 16" wheels and was considering a change. Can anyone tell me what the hub size is and what (if any) wheels from other Volvo models fit this car? Thanks.

Re: Wheel upgrade options (bdh08XC70)

I will also be upgrading to either 17" or 18" wheels with Michelin Pilot A/S as soon as the factory 16" wear out. I figure I will get about 30,000 from the factory tires, so 25,000 miles to go. The 16" are not too bad: 225/55/V16, but the wheels are too generic for this vehicle. <p><br>----<p>2008 Volvo V70 prem/climate/conv/xenon/pcc/sirius lifetime<br>

Have you decided what diameter you want to switch to? That makes a big difference in your search for new wheels. Very little to pick from in 16" size.

Re: Wheel upgrade options (MAC1LSR)

I would love to buy these (http://forums.swedespeed.com/zerothread?id=121914) but I am not sure if they will fit.<p>I know nothing about Volvo's. I drive an F150 and this is my wife's car but I think the stock 16" wheels are rather boring. <p>Does anyone know if these will fit? It would be nice since these are local.<p>I would actually like to find a set of stock 08-09 17" wheels, but I suspect they would probably be kind of expensive compared to these (with tires!!).

Re: Wheel upgrade options (Lotus99)

Lotus99,<br> I believe "Lunchman" has a V70 and not an XC70, hence the different sizes.

I didn't catch the first time you wanted OEM sizes of other Volvo models, thought you were looking at the other XC70 wheels.

Thanks.</TD></TR></TABLE><p>I did some research on this last year when I got my car as I needed winter wheels for my new XC70 T6. The dealer had told me I could only fit OEM wheels from the new XC70 or the new S80 on my car as the offset was different (????) and therefore I could not fit the 2007 XC90 17" wheels I had found.... HE WAS WRONG.... They fit perfectly but I needed to get some hubcentric rings to get a snug fit on the hub and avoid any vibrations. Here is the information I had gathered when I was shopping for my winter wheels:<br>Original wheels on T6: <br>Sargas wheels 7.5X17" (this is 7.5" wide)<br>Bolt pattern: 5X108<br>Offset is ET55<br>Hub size is 63.4mm<br>OEM tire size is 235/55R17<p>Wheeks I got from XC90:<br>Neptune wheels: 7X17" (this is 7" wide but OK with tires)<br>Offset: ET49<br>Hubs: 67.1mm (I needed hubcentric rings OD:67.1 / ID:63.4 to fit on XC70)<p>One more thing you might have to look for if you change wheel is the lenth of your bolts. In this case they were OK but on my Mercedes, I had to change them as the OEM bolts were too long for my new wheels and were interfering with the rear breaks. Bolts can be expensive <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vortexmediagroup.com/images/banghead.gif" BORDER="0"> <p>Here are 2 good links for tire size calculator and for offset calculator:<br><A HREF="http://www.miata.net/garage/tirecalc.html" TARGET="_blank">http://www.miata.net/garage/tirecalc.html</A><br>and<br><A HREF="http://www.1010tires.com/WheelOffsetCalculator.asp" TARGET="_blank">http://www.1010tires.com/WheelOffsetCalculator.asp</A><p>P.S.: if/when you decide to upgrade and want to sell your OEM 16" wheels, look toward our Quebec (Canada) market. Winter tires are mandatory and we need to change our tires twice a year. Many car ownwers (not on lease) will buy a second set of wheel for their winter tires and will look for an affortable set of mags for their Volvo instead of a set of steel wheels and wheel caps.

Re: Wheel upgrade options (bdh08XC70)

Hubcentric rings are cheap. I paid something like $10 for the set of 4. I got them off ebay at a store where I could do a buy-it now purshase. I just did a ebay search and I beleive they are identical to ebay item # 350233036092. They are in fact $9.96 free shipping.<p>I was told to ge with the plastic ones and change them every few years if needed as the aluminium ones will be hard to remove when corroded (not rusted as aluminium does not rust). Remember that I am using these wheels with the rings in winter conditions and we have a lot of salt and calcium on our roads in winter.
