      Lower series tires. Or at least in my case, actual spec'd series tires. I presume the 2015.5's like yours are on the 235/40R19's or the 235/45R18's? I ran into the same problem with the 235/45R18, I could not run a spacer at all and could not fit a single digit between the fender liner and the tire sidewall. The "proper" sized tire for my 2012 fit perfectly fine though.

      Im on 245/45/R19 at the moment and the squarer profile of the Pilot Sports probably doesn't help. But jeez, spacers and offset changes, i cant help but think you must be scrubbing somewhere.

      Is that a typo? If not, that's a huge setup (over 2.25" larger diameter from my 235/40R18).

      https://www.tacomaworld.com/tirecalc...0r18-245-45r19

      Assuming it is, and you meant 40, that's still a 1.3" diameter difference from my 235/40R18.

      https://www.tacomaworld.com/tirecalc...0r18-245-40r19

      My oversized 235/45R18 setup is more comparable to that 245/40R19 size, and I could not run a +40 offset with it. I didn't try +45 offset, although that might have fit.

      That was my thinking as well, the 19's I put on yesterday are 235/40R19, if I had put on 45 profile tires then I am pretty sure they would be rubbing. +45 offset and an 8.5" wheel, at least looking at what I now have, is likely going to be the maximum you can fit without rubbing or doing things like rolling the fenders.

      Of course, now I want to pick up some H&R springs for mine to close the wheel gap a little, but for now that can wait.

      I'm having tires mounted right now on new 19x8 wheels. The tires I chose are Nokian Zline A/S at 245/40/19. Hopefully they will fit without rubbing on R Design springs. I currently have 10mm spacers in front and 15mm spacers on the rear, but I have no idea if they will be useable. Any guesses?

      Here it is with the new wheels.

      2015.5 Sport Chassis (R Design height)

      Wheels are 19x8 55mm offset.

      Nokian Zline AS 245/40/19

      15mm spacers in the rear

      10mm spacers in front

      No rubbing.

      And finally no vibrations from the wheels and tires. I wish they were a lighter color, and I may change them soon. They are Ford Performance flow formed aluminum and weigh 23.25 pounds each. Best part is they are about $175 each.

      Thanks. I'm not sold on the color, but they should work just fine. Now I need to figure out if I am going to sell the Bors or hold on to them.

      Did some googling to find those wheels, looks like they are the Focus RS ford perf wheels? Only thing Is when I find them they show $209 each and 30lbs each?

      https://www.fordracingparts.com/part/M-1007-FST1908MG

      Where did you buy yours? Also curious what the stock Bohr wheels weigh as that’s what’s on my car now.

      Thanks for your help!

      Yes, that's them. I bought mine at Steeda.com for $179 each delivered. Below are the specs for the wheels from Tirerack.com which matches what my bathroom scale showed.

      I haven't weighed the Bors yet but will at some point this weekend. From what I remember, they weigh 27 or 28 pounds.

      Awesome thanks’! I’m in canada and looking to get a summer/track setup and keep the Bors for winter. These look like the perfect option for lightweight, strong , and affordable wheels! Were spacers necessary?

      Spacers are definitely not necessary. The wheels have the exact same specs as the Bors as far as offset and size are concerned.

      Hello everyone,

      Just put on new wheels and looking to drop the car a little bit. Based on what Iíve read here, the H&R lowering springs seems like the way to go. Is there a specific kit of springs?

      Any specific reason that you went with the 225 mm? Most people do tell you to go to 225 mm on a 7" or so wheel, but 235 mm is what the XC60 came with, just for future reference.

      You'll want to grab the H&R 28889-2.

      It is for S60 (both T5/T6 models).

      Right. I went with 225 because I was able to get a deal on the tires. I planned on going with 235 but, couldn't pass up the deal. All together, I was able to get the wheels and tires for about the same cost as just a set of four tires of the same quality.

      Check around on other sites. I ordered my springs through IPD and had to end up cancelling the order because they weren't in stock. This was a few weeks ago. At least call IPD first. They have pretty good phone service.

      I called the shop that did my wheels and apparently, I declined the springs when I purchased the wheels. They have the springs in stock.

      Depends... if you are going to get springs, and your front struts have a lot of miles on them, I'd replace the struts and definitely the strut bearing (if not whole bearing/mount assembly). Not worth going through all the trouble of getting the struts out if you have to do it again later due to a blown strut or a blow strut mount bearing.

      Itís currently at 75k. I made an appointment to do the springs with the wheel guy, but struts are not in the budget at the moment. Iíll have them take a look at it and if I have to do it now, then I guess Iíll get it done.

      Thanks for the info.

      Hey all, I have a 2015.5 s60 t6 w/ sport chassis. Looking to buy a set of track/autox wheels and tires. Do you reckon these will clear with no issues? Added pic of car for reference. I have the stock 19 Bors
