      Perfo (16 inch) Rims on a 2016 S60 R Design

      So you're all going to look at me like I'm crazy but I want to put my old school Perfo rims (i think they came on a 850 once upon a time... this would be the third Volvo since if this works) on my "new" (to me) 2016 R Design for my snow tire rims (yay lots of rubber to fight the pot hole monsters in CO).

      Is this even possible to do with the calipers on the R Design? Will this elicit public shaming from you all for even thinking about doing such a thing?

      This should be entertaining... and yes i'll post pics of the R Design when it gets here (assuming it passes 3rd party inspection tomorrow).

      Had them on my 2013 S60 T6 and it looked alright. I'll try and dig them up.

      VERY unlikely that a 16-inch wheel will clear the 336mm R-Design rotor .

      Here's a 16" on our T5. The wheel weights barely clear the caliper. I can't imagine a fit with a larger brake.

      Perfo (16 inch) Rims on a 2016 S60 R Design

      I drive a 2018 R Design with 19” wheels and I was told by when I bought winter rims for snow tires that 18” rims is the only size that will clear the calipers but that was the size of rim I wanted anyway.

      2013 and later R-Designs are supposed to have 336mm brakes: https://forums.swedespeed.com/showth...=1#post1961858

      Have you tried bolting the Perfos onto your S60? Otherwise you'll never really know.

      They're not going to fit... everything i've read says the smallest you can go is a 18. I'm kind of sad though as it would have been nice to keep it going.

      Everything you've read is probably right. It might be a waste of time to see whether they will fit, perhaps with a spacer to correct offset but that doesn't explain why 16 inch Volvo OE steel wheels fit on my V60.

      I have 17" Balders as snow tires on my '16 v60 r-design with no issues clearing brakes, so at least some 17" rims can work. The small wheel/big tire look is starting to grow on me.

      Lots more leeway with a steel wheel due to the thinner material.

      I have 16" alloy wheels for winter tires on my 2012 T5 with the 316 rotors and they fill all the space. barely fit.
      These Perfos would make someone with a T5 a nice winter package or all seasons if their wheels are shot.

      I like the look of those! Maybe i should at least try the 16 Perfos. Is it close on the 17? Aesthetically it might not be as cool looking but the extra rubber is a god send if you're driving pothole tracked roads that are pretty much obligatory here in CO when you're going to ski.

      Some 17s do clear, some do not. I happen to own a set of 17" Mestra wheels and they just barely clear (with enough room for stick-on wheel weights) on my 2013 RD:



      I'd be shocked if any 16" wheel cleared the 2013+ R-Design front brake setup.

      Perfo (16 inch) Rims on a 2016 S60 R Design

      Also in Colorado. Here’s what Balders look like on an r design. Would be better with spacers but oh well.

      235/55-17 Michelin Xi3s with steelies on our ‘16 V60RD (from my trusted tire supplier - gather the wheels are a Ford part number).
      ‘17s are the smallest to clear the larger front brakes, which Volvo first specked for the extra nose heavy S80 V8.
