Need pics and advice of 17" s80 wheels on 1998 S70/v70

Post by CIK7 » Mon Mar 09, 2020 3:52 pm

A while back someone shared a pic of someone's p80 v70 with s80 rims. Im looking at possibly getting a 17" set from the jy near me. I have 16" wheels from a 98 V70 base AWD with 205/60 BFGoodrich Advantage TA Sport tires. Loves the tires; the wheels not so much. If you can get pics of an sv70 with 17" wheels from an s80, please post pic and specify the tires size. Factory 16" Volvo tire size is 205/55r16. My size 205/60r16. I understand factory 17" Volvo size for p80 is 215/45r17.

Re: Need pics and advice of 17" s80 wheels on 1998 S70/v70

I am running 17" rims on my 2000 V70R AWD. Tires can be either 215/45/17 as you mention, but I am using 225/45/17 on my car.

The issue you have to watch on the AWD models is the offset. I have a set of THOR wheels for winters and I can't recall what the summers are on but there are 2 that are very similar lattice style and can't recall now what they are.

The offset I have is 49mm. For my car I have no issues with the front, but at full extension on the rear (like when on axle stands) when the suspension is fully extended it the inside of the rim binds on the rear sub-frame. For normal driving it is no issue.

Standard offset for P80 models is 43mm.

I was hoping to get pics for examples to see what 17 s80 rims look good on the v70.

I'm really sorry I should have gotten apic when I saw them. I had right away said no when I saw them because I didn't want to go through buying more tires. It was on a Volvo S80 T6, no ugly black bumper/skirt border. I think it was a 2004 or newer. The vehicle is at the Pickers parts in Reno tx. And the link for S80 wheels posted by MoVolvo isn't good because a lot of those wheels came on earlier models P80.

I'm going there next week. I think I can get a whole set for $25. 2 because I'm trading 2 I already got there and 2 @ $25 each, 50% off 'first time' purchase. im gonna try to get the cushion from the driver and pass seat to HOPEFULLY fit over my seats. I'll let y'all know what the wheels look like. What I really want is a full size spare. Do s80 models typically come with full size spare?

My car is surrounded in snow and under a car cover for the winter, but here is a picture of when I bought it about 7 years ago. I have a different set of wheels that are similar looking from a S60 as these turned out to have 2 with dents in the inner edge of the rims causing balance issues.

I also have the Thor wheels from a V70 P2 model which are the ones under the cover for now.
