Quick question. Is it possible to install the xc70 shocks on to my 01 v70 t5 for a taller ride height? I plan on getting larger tires as well to compensate.

Yes but you'll need the XC control arms as well which will increase track at the front. Car's geometry front to rear will be off.

What about just using the xc70 tire size 215/55.16?

if it clears and doesn't rub sure.

but it's probably going to rub at full steering lock. You may be able to use the "R" steering stops, but your turning radius will get large.
