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.

If you have a 98-00 V70, interested in getting 'interior remodeling' ideas, PM me. I used software to design some woodwork I want to refit my XC with. Satin nickel on dark walnut with shag.
