      Upgrade to 19" or 20" Ixion Wheels?

      I've always loved the look of the Ixion wheel on the XC60. I had a 2011 and now have a 2014 XC T6 w/Polestar. I want to upgrade the wheels to either 19" or 20" Ixion. I live in the Northeast US and wanted to know opinions on which size to get. I don't want too harsh of a ride. I'll keep my 18" Zephyrus for Winter tires.



      UPDATED: Here are the 20" Ixion 2 Wheels

      I have the Cratus and the Candor 20" wheels for my XC60 and the ride isnt harsh at all and I am up in Canada. I'd recommend the 20's for sure to get that sure contrast from your 18's.
      Love the color on your XC60!

      Come to Alberta where we actually have a really good freeze/thaw cycle that lasts 6-8 months haha. I wouldn't swap my 18's for 19/20's here.

      The Ixion 4 20" are my favorite OEM's at the moment. Second would be the 20" Altais then Candor.

      Nice 19" are Bor, Achilles and Lesath. I think the 19" Ixion 4, from the S/V60 R-Design will fit also. There's also the Polestar wheel option in 19's and 20's.

      The Talitha Wheels on the Red R Design above were my second choice for second wheels after the 20" Candor wheels. Good choice!

      This is an Edmonton vehicle currently in Vancouver.

      Thanks Spyder999 and the others who commented. Seems like 20" would be my best bet. I've found a good price for the Ixion 2 wheels at Tasca. Tried to get my local dealer to price match but they can't. The Ixion 4's look really nice too, but I'm not sure if I'm willing to pay the extra $ for them.

      All I need to figure out is the tire, prob Conti's, and TPSM's.

      i am in Edmonton this weekend and should have my Ixion 20" on the car. If you and Daryl McManus are around we should get together for a coffee and meet. I am visiting the dealership there as I am investigating trading into a 2017 V60 Polestar they have in stock. Of course that depends on how happy they can make me..

      That sounds good but if you read it all (the following post), I said my vehicle is from Edmonton, but is now in Vancouver. I'm actually in Vancouver. Thx anyway for the invite. =)
      I'd love to see a Polestar V60 purchase! What are you trading?

      I'm actually thinking about going with the Michelin Pilot Sport A/3+. They are the same price as the Conti's on TireRack Plus a $70 gift card.

      Thx! I wanted to get Volvo wheels and not after market wheels so it was a limited selection, but I got used to these and got them. They weren't cheap though, going directly through the dealer!

      I decided to go with the 20" Ixion 2 wheels with Conti Extreme Contact tires. I think they look great! Had to have the tires re-balanced already and it seems like they cannot get them perfect.
