98 xc wheels and tires

Post by CIK7 » Sun Nov 24, 2019 6:43 am

As some of my fellow Volvo P80 V70 fans would know, the XC AWD comes from the factory with 205/65r15 tires and the base AWD comes with 205/55r16. Mine is the XC but came with base AWD wheels and tires. I'm seriously thinking about either seeing if a salvage yard has 15s OR just changing the tire size on mine OR waiting until I buy spacers to install my 17s from my Chevy Impala.
1. What are the various 15" sizes I can get?
2. What are the various 16" sizes I can get? I've been thinking about 205/60r16. They are cheaper and still reasonable size.
3. I already know what 17" sizes I can get.
I realize there are tire size charts out the but they're frustrating.
1998 V70 XC black ($1K trade, Mi:143,995/151K The Cloud, totalled 5/2/20 @149K, engine toast @ 151,1XX)
1998 V70 XC white ($50 cash, junk, donor for my black XC)
2001 V70 Ba white (sold)
2009 Impala LT 3.5L (sold)

Plans for The Cloud: a jy engine, then an offroader.
