2015 Volvo S60: Love Those Big, Modern Wheels
by Kelly Hellwig, Managing Editor on September 9, 2015
I know a thing or two about Volvos, as I happen to own one. No, I don't own a current-gen car like our 2015 Volvo S60. Instead I have a "classic" 1998 V70 GLT hidden in my garage. With just 57K miles on the odometer, my wagon is patiently waiting for my 15-year-old daughter to get her driver's license.
One thing my kid has already taken notice of is the difference in wheels (both size and style), between our S60 test car and my personal V70.
"Why are the wagon's wheels so teeny-tiny?" she asks. Um, because they're stock at 15 inches, I tell her. Despite my husband's urging to upgrade them years ago, I never saw the need.
"And they're so boring," she says. Yep, I acknowledge. The staid six-spokes aren't nearly as appealing as the 18-inch multi-spoke alloys that roll under the S60. But despite its understated wheel-n-tire package, my Volvo has been nothing but good to me. I hope the S60's future owner can say that about the sedan 17 years from now.
