      Can the XC90 T6 R Design be leased with all season (M+S) tires?

      We live in SoCal and rarely encounter snow, but over the Christmas holiday we were up in the local mountains (Big Bear) and there was an R2 chain advisory - which meant that even 4 wheel drive cars had to have chains unless they had Snow tires (of which the M+S all season counts as a snow tire). Fortunately I'd replaced the summer tires on our AWD A6 with M+S All Seasons and I was able to avoid putting chains on, but had I had the normal summer tires they would have been required. If the snow had been real bad I would have considered the chains in either case, but the truth was there was barely any left on the road but CalTrans/CHP hadn't lifted the R2 requirement.

      So...with my reasoning above out of the way...can I get the T6 R Design (lease) with M+S All Seasons and not summer tires without it being a pain in the ass or costing extra?

      TIA

      My RDesign has 22" and those are summer only, but everything else they sell in Canada has M+S. Not sure about California, though.

      My R-Design has stock rims. All season are standard on those.

      As long as you don't opt for 22" wheels, the other sizes come with M+S tires, standard.

      Personally, I never use chains. If it's going to be so bad (blizzard and over 18" of snow) I just don't drive in it. Otherwise, I have taken every conceivable AWD Volvo in up to 14" of unplowed roads with no issues.

      Just a couple of weeks ago, we went from San Diego to Idyllwild, driving my V90 Cross Country; drove through some not plowed roads that had a few inches of snow, no problems even on steep inclines.

      Thanks to everyone for the responses - great news! I'm going to miss the S90 (especially having the T8 - don't think we'll splurge for that), but really looking forward to the XC90.
