Ordered with the 17" Mannan. Only choice for the D2.

Will be replaced by my current 18" Midir from my C30.
And 17" Mannan will be equiped with wintertyres.

? want to order it with the Spider 7x17 which is available in the S40 and the C30. Is it possible? I do not want to pay extra money for the tires afterwards...

I have chosen the standard Matres 16" for winter tyres and the Segomo 17" in Silver Bright colour for summer tyres. I have not really seen any V40 pics with the Silver Brights on, only the dark grey ones, so I am quite excited too see how they look with the Biarritz Blue colour of the car...

I hate my original Matres 16" (with winter tyres), they're so boring and color is'nt good.

I've ordered for winter tyres these:

Mak Goethenburg ice titan is made for Volvo, and the specs are similar to original (ET/offset is 50 in 16" size, 7 X 16, and 63,4 mm).

For summer I have Volvo Freya wheel, original (this is my car in the another car forum):

I went with the standard Matres on my, yet to arrive, D2 SE Nav. I had other things I wanted to spend my (companies) money on.

These guys report the Mak Goethenburg ice titan as unsuitable for winter use

I when with the standard Rdesign style (what ever they were called) but in 18".

They are a pants wheel to look after/clean, too many corners due to the 20 or so tiny veins running along each spoke (also I hate diamond cut rims)

I am considering changing the colour to a light anthracite

I have the Larenta 17" dark grey rims on my CC, great looking and doesn't show the brake dust (so much)! :)
