      Anyone running 18" wheels on XC90?

      Hi

      I am trying to figure out whether 18" rims will work for winter tires with my 2017 XC90 T6 R-Design - The site below seems to say it will, but I am concerned with the calipers not fitting considering 17" wheels did not work.


      https://www.wheel-size.com/size/volvo/xc90/2017/

      If anyone has been running 18" wheels, it would be great to hear feedback.

      thank you

      Don’t know the difference between calipers on r design and momentum, but here is momentum on 18” inc wheels. Wheels are Volvo branded.

      I don’t believe there is a difference in calipers between models
      That’s helpful, thank you!

      FYI, the T8 does have larger calipers I believe...

      why the tire choice? Experimenting with a set of mild ATs as my winter setup. It's early but I wanted to break in the tires before the snow falls.
