2012 Volvo S60 T5: Nice Wheels for a Volvo

October 17, 2011


When I think about which manufacturers have the best stock wheel designs, Volvo rarely comes to mind. The Germans are better than most in this regard, although even Audi and BMW have brought out some weak designs lately.

Maybe that's why the double spoke 18s on our S60 look good to me. They're a tasteful finish, an aggressive design and a reasonable size. Sure, eighteen-inch wheels aren't exactly small, but they fit the S60 well and still manage to deliver an acceptable ride quality. Not bad considering the car runs 40 series tires.

If it were my S60, I might have gone for the Ixion 18s instead though. ixion-wheel.jpg
