S60 Tire Rub

It is common. They ALL do it with this size tire. The BRAND of tire makes a difference. Volvos come with Pirellis as they have a narrow tread block. Your easiest “fix” is to add 5mm spacers to the front wheels, on most Volvos this cures the rubbing!

  1. I have a 2002 S60 AWD turbo and need to replace tires. Looking at 205/55/r16 Bridgestone Potenza Pole Position.
    Tire Rack has cautionary note that it MAY require steering limiter against rub on fender liner.
    Current tires are same size Kumho, but no tire rub at all.
    Any thoughts/comments/experience with tire rub for S60’s? The Potenza tire? Or recommenations on tires for S60?
