I bought a V50 T5 AWD a month ago, and would like to get a seperate set of rims, to mount some snow tires on. Can I buy used 16" X 6.5 rims for any other Volvo products? I would like to not buy them new from Volvo for $190 CDN each.
You may want to check the dealer towards the fall, most often they have deals on tire/rim packages. The gislaved nord frost 3 is an exceptional tire which I would put up against any of the "name brand" ones out there. Let me know and I can get you a price, I spent 5 years at a dealership in SW ontario.
Thanks for posting…however, my problem is that I already have a set of Michelin Artic Alpins, and I just need to buy the rims. Do you know where I can get a reasonable price in Canada, for steel rims that will fit my car? Reasonable being around $100 - $125.
Thanks for replying...sorry it took so long to get back to you. I am now stating to figure out what I want to do, since winter is just around the corner. I called the Volvo dealership, and they still want $197 CDN for a steel rim. Thats hard to take.
I live in Halifax, Nova Scotia. If there is anything else you could recommend, I'd certainly appreciate it.
