'99 V70 XC Snow Tire Size (?)

Discussion in 'Volvo V70' started by Bob(but not THAT Bob), Oct 20, 2005.

  1. The manual says 195/65-15

    Nokian says use 205/65-15 on the XC, and 195/65 on other V70 AWDs.

    Wonder who's right - I usually minus-size winter tires, but this is my
    first AWD and I want to maximize traction w/o losing ground clearance
    (even .5").

    BTW, who has best Nokian Hakka 2 prices in the US? Haven't found any
    great online bargains so far.

    Your manual may recommend this size so there's room for tire chains. If
    you want to use the stock size and don't plan on using chains, then go
    ahead. Also there's something to be said for using a more common size -
    prices and availability are usually better.

    Replace tt with t (twice!) and remove parentheses to email me directly.
