Um i have old action shots when i was rolling on cut springs and 205 60 15s lol. That was some body roll.

Right now i have custom made coilovers in the front with 482# springs, 25mm swaybar, "solid" end links, and 215 45 17s There really isnt any body roll.

That's a big 4cyl, what kind of power are you making? And why such huge wheels after you put all that work into the car's handling?

No idea, never dynod.

The wheels are light for their size much much lighter than the steelies i have on there now.

The tire width should make up for any loss of traction do to unsprung weight.

I want those wheels. If you find another pair for cheap let me know

215/45 on a 9.5 should look pretty good.

Lol I like how they got so pricey after the stance scene. You can get them cheap on CL any day.

This photo may change your opinion on that subi, I still do not think they look the greatest on it.







And Akward I have a 5x110 Pattern, obviously for most good wheels I need adapters/wobble bolts.

Volvos are roll cages. Go off the side of the road, do a few rolls, and you'll probably be fine.

215s on a 9.5" wheel would be retarded. There would be no point.

That's what I thought but I wasn't sure, figured I'd ask and not make wrong assumptions.

I have heard of people rolling Volvos with not much more than a scratched up roof.
