      It's definitely in the '01-'04 range. He painted some of the trim.

      Largest wheel/tire combo without rubbing issues

      You guys have some amazing wheels!!!

      Any opinions on the largest wheel/tire combo that will fit an '01 S60 2.4, with stock suspension?

      I'm not looking for the rubber-band-wrapped-around-a-plate look, but much closer to that than stock, and I'm certainly not interested in wheel-lock or bump rubbing. I've done that before and quickly grew weary of it.

      Need wheel ideas! Let me see your wheels!

      You can go w 19s with a 35 tire. Width all depends on offset, spacers, etc. There are some who have pulled off 19s but you need to be careful of potholes. 17/18s look pretty good on these cars.

      these Mirzam wheels are from the C70 convertible, they required spacers with a downsize hub to mount, but it worked out just fine.

      Assuming an 18" wheel, 8" wide, do I even need to worry about spacers on a stock suspension?

      For example, searching by vehicle ('01 S60 2.4) on TireRack and choosing an 18" x 8" wheel, it offers offsets various offsets from 38-48mm. Generally, regardless of the offset, Tirerack offers 225/40ZR18 tires for those wheels but notes, "Use of 225/40-18 tire may require a steering limiter available from Volvo dealer. Tire may rub fender liner when turning if limiter is not used."

      I assume Tirerack isn't likely suggesting tires that don't really fit, so would it be generally safe to say that with the addition of the steering limiter, nearly any 18" x 8" wheel, with a 225/40ZR18 tire will work?

      Has the "deep dish" look gone away on wheels? I don't think I saw even one 18" with the deep dish look on Tirerack.

      There are 3 piece wheels w a deep dish look that you may be able to get away with but they are typically much wider and require rolled fenders and maybe fender flares depending on size. 8 inch wheels are fine for the s60. Try Craiglist and don't forget to check out SS classifieds for wheels. There is a good non-affiliated thread there. Picked up mine off Craigslist.

      Interesting, I didn't realize that the deep dish look was typically so wide! I certainly have no interest in those kinds of mods on this car. Thank you!

      Volvo makes different size steering limiters for running different size wheels on s60s. This is to avoid or usually only reduce rub. If you get a wheel with a decent offset like 40-38mm then rubbing will most likely not be an issue but you still may need larger limiters. Just because tire rack reccomends it doesn't necessarily mean that it won't rub.

      You might go looking for a used set and have them straightened, repainted and re-machined. I had these 17"s for 11 years on the car and had them redone for $500

      Raderwerks et56 on an S60?

      Okay folks, I figured that I would ask the pros here.

      I want to buy a set of Raderworks BMW wheels, et56, bolt pattern 5x120, with 225/40 R18 tyres on them. I know I need a bolt converter to convert the 5x108 lug pattern on my S60, so there is thickness there, but otherwise will this work? I see others on here with the same sizes, but I just know I'm missing something(s).

      Or, can someone point me in the right direction to figure it out? I'm not sure how the offset blends with the converter.

      Good point, thank you.

      I don't mind limiters, I do mind rubbing.

      I don't see why it won't work especially with that high of an offset and the adapters, the main issue would be that the adapter are generally 25mm and with a low offset they have mad poke but you'd be running 15mm offset with the 25 mm adapters.

      Edit: 31mm offset which is close to what Volvo's run

      Thanks Bryce

      Okay, you're throwing me here. What is "mad poke?" Let me see if I have this straight:

      The 31mm offset on my '01 S60 has the wheels x mm in from the fender. The 56mm offset would then move the wheels in a further 25mm, but with the adaptors at 25mm that would be a wash, and the new wheels would sit more or less in the same position in relation to the fender?

      Adapters/spacers move the face of the wheel out, but higher offsets move the face of the wheel in. Is that right? I'm not seeing how you get those numbers above.

      When it rains, it pours. Also, I have the opportunity to get 2 front BMW, 17x8, 5 Lug 120mm, with 20mm Offset, Style: #66 and two matching rear but they are 17x9, with a 26mm Offset.

      Here then, the front wheels would 11 mm farther out than the stock, and the 25mm adapter would mean that the wheel face would move out 36mm more than stock? Rear would be 5mm farther out and with the adapter the face moves 30mm farther out. Thoughts?

      Yup you are correct! The lower the offset the farther out from the center of the car the wheel will poke. My buddy has -11 offset on his 740 I'll see if I can get photos for you the edge of the wheel sits outside the fender.

      The higher the number the farther into the vehicle the face of the wheel will sit the lower the number the farther out. When you add spacers your basically lowering the number by the width of the spacer

      Got it, thank you!!

      But I'm not having any luck finding a site that tells me exactly what space I have to work with in the S60. Anyone have any ideas?

      Sites like wheel-size.com and tiresize.com will show you all the changes you could ever want with wheels and tires, including diameters, speedometer effect, the whole works, but they don't give me any idea where I am inside the wheel well.

      For example:

      http://www.1010tires.com/Tools/Tire-...5R17/255-40R17

      will show how the tires on said wheels compare to stock, but doesn't take into account changes in offset and spacers.

      Maybe this makes more sense:

      I have done everything but pulled the trigger on some OEM BMW E46 M3 wheels.

      The fronts are 19 x 8 ET41 and the rears are 19 x 9.5 ET27. Tires are 225/40R19 in front, the rears 255/35R19.

      Since the bolt pattern on them is 5 x 120, and the S60 is 5 x 108, I will need a adapter/spacer, so that would be 25mm (1 inch).

      Does anyone have any thoughts as to whether these will fit? I have always LOVED these wheels, so I'm willing to sacrifice a little bit.

      Thoughts anyone?

      It's a hideous wheel. Appears you have mad love for BMW? Only wheel I think BMW made that looks ok is the 359 or the M3 CSL. Be aware the center bore is 72.6mm so if sourcing some adapters make sure the center bores are correct or you will have some awful vibration. Volvo has some machined wheels they have been putting on S60's recently that appear very similar to the M3 Machined wheel you referenced, the 70393 and the center bore is 65.1mm same as your 2001. Still a not so attractive wheel http://mvpwheels.com/factory-oem-201...70393-u45.html

      Thank you for the tips though! I think I am not going to pick them up. As much as I do love them, I think they are going to be more trouble than they are worth.

      The old rear wheel driven Volvos, the 140 and 240 series used ET25. The 740's and 940/960's might use ET25 too, can't remember.. The S60 however uses ET44 to ET49.

      I think they would look cool with some spacers and low/minimal wheel gap. Would wobble bolts work?

      Edit: probably too much difference in size for wobble bolts to work.
