    Default Can't believe I waited 8 yrs!

    After 8 yrs (orig owner of an '05 XC70) and two sets of tires (Pirelli Scorpion STR, Nokian WRG2), I just bought new wheels and tires (Borbet LV5, 18"x8"; Conti Extreme Contact DWS, 235/50/18). This set-up looks great to me and really improves handling as well as reduces road noise. I should have done this earlier, but will now use the OEM wheels for a winter set-up. The difference is remarkable.

    Sorry for the upside down pics, not sure what the issue is.

    I was just thinking those tires have incredible grip.
