I have a perfect set of Nokian hakkepellitta 205-55 R16 barely 3 months old from my SAAB 9-5 . Would these fit the Volvo 16" alloy rims of the 2008/9 XC70?. Does Volvo have alternately in accessories metal rims for thatXc70 that these tires could fit onto?

Just found older message,not possible?

I found a message a few months old,which describes the tires for OEM 16" rims as 215.55R16. I guess the tires i have are too small in diameter. Can the odometer be calibrated to address a smaller size as 205.55R16? Any way around this so as to use the perfectly good and expensive Nokians? Of interest ,would they fit a smaller Volvo like the v50?

Thanks for the responses.

I appreciated the replies. A friend plans to try the tires and rims on his Chevy. The 9-5 rims fitted a number of GM cars including the older Saturn L series and i am told the Caddy CTS. i will simply start from scratch with all I need with the Xc70
