You can either check out tirerack, or search for anything with a 5x108 bolt pattern.<p>If you go here,<p><A HREF="http://www.wheelsmaster.com/rt_specs.jsp" TARGET="_blank">http://www.wheelsmaster.com/rt_specs.jsp</A><p>You can input the stock values vs the aftermarket wheels you want. It'll give you a rough estimate on weather or not the wheel with work with your vehicle.

Hey there...<p>I believe the 18" Midir wheel will fit from the FWD S40 T5 and it comes in two styles. Both are very good-lookin wheels. You can see the Midir wheel on the volvo website under the interactive gallery section for the S40.<p>T

Volvo cars will only go up to 17" if it's an AWD.<p>I'm waiting for my 2010 S40 T5.... Should be here around late Aug.<p>Got mine from the Jaguar/Land Rover/Volvo military sales over in the UK (RAF Lakenheath)<p>Are you @ Ramstein?

Re: (USAF 2010 T5)

I'm AWD and currently have 19x8" wheels with 235/35/19 tires, and have had 19x8.5" in the past without problems, and I am lowered with the blue Evolve springs (1.5" F and 1.4" R drop). I like the looks of 19"s the most, but 18"s are the best compromise between performance and looks for our cars.<p>

I was just making sure the OP didn't get confused and think the AWD Volvos can't have <I>any</I> wheels larger than 17"s. The way the sentence was worded I wasn't sure if you meant stock or any wheels. Thanks for the CLARIFICATION. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/wink.gif" BORDER="0">

You may want to talk to your military sales agent again, I never checked on my V50 but I know other models have other factory wheel options available, here's a link with a few of the options and as its says that's not everything that is available for the military sales. <p><A HREF="http://www.volvocars.com/military/militarySales/offers/Pages/Customization.aspx" TARGET="_blank">http://www.volvocars.com/milit....aspx</A>

wheel choices are almost endless for the volvos actually... u just need to find a place that sells rims and have them ask which manufacturer will do a custom setup for u... most manufacturers will!

I hate how some S40's come with 7" tires (or are they smaller?), and it makes the car look wimpy from the back side. Just my opinion.<p>So while you may be looking at rim diameter, also pay attention to the width.

Re: (USAF 2010 T5)

Do the 19" wheels rub at all? I've still got my stock wheels on my AWD V50 and get a horrific rubbing noise when I approach full steer <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vortexmediagroup.com/images/banghead.gif" BORDER="0"> ... Any wisdom would be most appreciated!

18s will work, check out what Volvo offers, specifically for the S40/V50: <A HREF="http://vccs.volvocars.se/accessories/cat/en-GB/S40-V50/styling/alu/default.htm" TARGET="_blank">http://vccs.volvocars.se/acces...t.htm</A><p>I have the Medusas and like them.

If you are stationed in Germany, head to Heico Sportiv outside of Darmstadt and drool at their 18 and 19"ers. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/smile.gif" BORDER="0">
