    Post Please, give me a "wheel primer"

    I want to get another set of wheels for my XC70.
    I've used the "search" button to the best of my ability, but still don't understand.

    I really don't care what they look like, so long as they are the same size as what I have now- I don't care if they match or not. Prefer them to be all different.

    I want to use them for winter tires.

    Anyway, am I correct that the offset from a V70/ S60 is not the same as an XC70? But they could be used with the correct spacers?

    Where do you get spacers?

    This is all Greek to me (since I don't speak Greek)

    I've never messed with anything with so many wheel sizes and offsets...
    It gives me a headache.

    Brake caliper clearance can be an issue with some 15s on the XC so be aware of that. 16s or 17s are probably a better option anyway though.
