      I'll have to check that place out. It's in my neck of the woods (even though Oxford is kind of in the middle of nowhere)

      Nice! I went with the Continental VikingContact 7's on both my V70 and my S90 this time around.

      They are amazing, and were quite affordable on Tirerack.

      Just keep in mind that wheel offset doesn't mean much without knowing the width of the rim.

      I was getting really confused about these sizes, until I noticed you were talking about CC's.

      Apparently they came with very different sizes stock compared to the regular S/V90's

      I had this happen with a loaner XC60 from my dealer once. My S90 has never done it though.
