Bad Bad Tires!
By confussed veteran on


2001 Volvo S60 T5 4dr Sedan (2.3L 5cyl Turbo 5M)


I owned a 240 dl,850,940,andloved them
all!I thought the s60 would be a step
up!I love the bodystyle,heated seats,&
gadgets.But there is a HUGE problem
with the car,it haslow profile tires!5
blow out/flats in 1.5years!I beleive
this is directly related to the wheel
base size and the tire size.In my
total driving experience with a volvo
I have never had a flat or blow out! I
fear this is a serious design flaw and
would warn anyone about purchasing the
car with the low profile tires on it!
They are very expensive and replacing
the tires is making me have a bad
taste in my mouth with a company I
have loved for so long.

Best Features

seat head rest button..love it!

Worst Features

every time I turn the wheel too far to the right or left the tires rub against the wheel base and thus wear down the tire. smaller, cheaper, tires
