Hi All,

I wanted to start sniffing around for a set of 17" wheels to run snow tires on the 2011 XC90. Will 17's fit over the 228mm brakes I have?

Thanks!

I think the issue was with 16" wheels fitting over the larger brakes on the cars that came with 17" wheels. I don't think the brakes changed after that, so if your car came with 18s, 17s should fit. check what size your spare is.

17's will run on 336 brakes, had a set on my Sport for a second while the 19's were getting new tires, just to see if it would work- https://photos.app.goo.gl/9ZBhfADqvBPqE4xM7

Looks funny, drives fine though. Know it does not answer your question outright but it's another data point for others since we're on the subject.

Thanks guys!

Greg, that's a lot of brake in those wheels! :)

A salvage yard about 100 miles from here has a set of four.
