16" P2 rims on 302mm brakes

Post by Goupil » Sun May 31, 2020 2:01 am

Hi folks,

I'm trying to source a cheap spare wheel for my 98 V70 with 302mm brakes, and there's a guy local selling a pair of Regulus 16" from an S60

Do these have the same fitment issue as P80 16" rims ? The offset is a little higher on the P2, maybe that would help with clearance ?

Higher ET...closer to caliper.
That said....higher offset means that wheel is more toward to inside.
On p80....the higher et wheels which can be mounted is ET49 and no wider than 205 width tire.That's close enough to the strut.
Original ET for P80 is 43.

I have factory S80 alloys(which have the same offset of 49 like S60) wheels for my winter setup and that's the closest that it can be with 205/55/16.

EDIT:
Just saw the picture of the wheel on your link.
Those are exactly the same i have for winter setup.They are from S80 not S60.
