Choosing alloys based on an online configurator or a Volvo iPad app is a challenge, as alloys can look quite different in real life.

I thought I would share my photos with you guys, of the alloy lineup available in Poland. Please share yours!

Taranis


Segomo


Matres


Mannan

Nope, only these four alloys to choose from. Few here choose 18s as the roads are quite crappy in Poland. I went for Mannan, 17s as they offer relatively good comfort while looking quite nice as well.

Yeah they look good... Depending on the choice over here, I may go for some nice aftermarket wheels :)

I will have a look on after market alloys as well, for winter wheels.

The alloy choice at Volvo, for the V40, is very limited in Poland. I liked the simple design of Segomos, but did not think the matte gray colour suited the white exterior whith shiny silver finishing around windows in my Momentum package. If they were either darker or lighter, I would have chosen Segomo. I noticed they looked nicer on darker exteriors, but this is so personal. Mannans are little too shiny for my taste, especially in bright sunlight, but look better in real life than in the configurator and surprisngly nice for being multispokes, that I like less than simple designs as Segomo. I liked the Taranis and their colour, but 18s are overkill for Polish roads if you wanna keep a comfy ride and alloys intact. Taranis were also very expensive in Poland. Matres are just to small for the V40 in my opinion and they could look better as well I suppose. I saw a picture of a white V40 on Mannans, that I liked just enough to go for them.

I am looking for after market alloys to be fitted with winter tyres. Do you think these would suit the V40 in Ice White?
I am not sure they would fit the V40, but they fit the V60 at least.
I like the VOLUTION Black Diamond-Cut from Heico, but they are only available in 19s and are pretty expensive, while I want some cheaper 17s with a similar design.

Good idea,

here some Freja 205/50 R17 - Pics on a V40 Flamenco Red (not mine):



These are my favorites, because they require no steering limiter, because 205 tires.

It looks as if only the Matres is suitable for balance weights on the outside of the wheel. I hate visible balance weights. If I had Matres, when it came time for re-balancing I'd ask to have only self-adhesive weights on the inside of the wheel like the other wheels. I know that balance weights on the outside of the wheel allow for better balancing but I still don't like them.

Have you considered the R-Design standard Ixion 17 inch ? They are not an option to add to any car other than R-Design though.

However I am sure the dealer must be able to source them - what would happen if someone damaged a rim on an R-Design. They may of course be pretty expensive.

I almost got the 18" Midir for my V40 CC, but turned out that the CC uses 225/45 R18 tires, and these wheels are made for 225/40 R18 tires which only fit the V40, but not the V40 CC :(

Right now I have the Mefitis
