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.

Mighty nice! I like them! No issues with offset, rubbing?

No problems with them rubbing on the front, but take not of the full rear axle extension note, where the inner edge of the rim can bind on the outer edge of the sub-frame. The only time this would happen is if you decide to take the car airborne or when the car is lifted of the ground for repair.

Hope this helps.

Oh, I have been tempted to relpace the wheels that look liked this with a set of the straight multi-spoke 17" wheels off an XC90 (03-14). There are a couple of sets for sale on kijiji just now in Alberta, The only issue is I have no where currently to store them, and one set is way too expensive due to tires I don't need, and the other cheaper set have road rash and it cost me about $100/wheel to have them powder coated.

If I don't use the 17" set, I'll sell it to you for a low cost. If you are interested.
