Suspension and tire woes
By "Tired" Out on


2006 Volvo C70 T5 2dr Convertible (2.5L 5cyl Turbo 6M)


Wonderful to look at, and fun to drive, but a disaster on tire wear. Dealer states that suspension is designed for high speed driving, so tire wear will be an issue. Originals wore out at 14000, and this set will be about the same. Dealer suggests going with H rated tires for better wear, but they aren't authorized to put them on. I'm thinking a trade is in the near future. Hate to do it, because I love the car, but $1000 + for tires every 14000 miles is no good. Local tire dealer says the suspension system (camber) is not adjustable, so Im stuck. Beware and watch for tire cupping.

Best Features

Great looks, and cool convertible top mechanism that turns heads.Comfortable and roomy enough for four adults.

Worst Features

Redesign the suspension system for normal driving. We can't all live near the Autobahn. Dealers should at least advise potential buyers of the tire wear problem. Ya, right. That will never happen.
