      Picture Request - Polestar 21" wheels

      Looking for any pictures of the 21" Polestar wheels on an XC60. I've googled it and found one example - on a silver XC60. Looking for a picture on a black XC60, and especially a lowered XC60. I'm trying to decide between the new 2017 R design 20" wheels (Ixion IV) or the Polestar 21's.

      What are the 2017 R design wheels? Have they changed? I think the Polestars look good, but the ride must be getting pretty harsh if the 20s are already considered firm....

      8x20 Ixion IV - Diamond Cut/Matte Black


      The 21" wheels for the XC90 do not have a matte black finish.


      There are two 22" wheels with a matte black finish.

      Picture Request - Polestar 21" wheels

      Good picture of the Ixion 4's. The 21's I'm talking about are the Polestar wheels here - just looking for more pictures, but on a black XC60. Doesn't seem like anyone has them yet. All I can find are stock photos.

      This picture is a closeup on the V40. I don't know if you can call that a matte black finish.

      Hmmm, not sure how I feel about any of those newer wheel choices.

      That looks good! Get it a little lower and it'll be perfect

      I'm thinking about those! How is the ride on those springs? Is it that much stiffer? I was also looking at the Polestar coils and springs but it doesn't look like they adjust right height at all.

      The car sits lower but mostly in the rear. When next to a stock XC60 the difference can be seen.
      The ride is very good. It is firm yes but composed.

      Johann, what springs do you have? I have the H&R. Ride quality is firmer but still good. That is with 18's. I'm cautious about pairing them with 21's with a 40 series profile tire.

      Car used to be on OEM R-Design sport suspension. With the 21" wheels we opted for the Polestar Performance Parts suspension which consists of dampers and springs.
      Polestar says the wheel/suspension combo is developed as a whole and it shows.
