Default Volvo alloy swap

We're travelling to the Alps to go skiing this year and so obviously would like some winter tyres.

I impulse bought some 17" alloys a few months ago, but have decided that the price difference for winter tyres for 16" wheels is so great that I'd like to swap them for smaller ones.

I don't have any photos of the alloys right now as they're being stored at the inlaw's house. They're not in good condition, having lots of corrosion, and probably want all 4 tyres replacing.

I'm looking to do a straight swap for some original Volvo 16" alloys from a C30/S40/V50.

Below is not an image of the actual wheels, its just to show which ones they are.

Hi,

What size tyres are on the wheels you have currently? I have some 16 C30 wheels.

Cheers
Andy

Apologies, I forgot to update this.

I ended up buying a set of 16" alloys and selling the ones I had about 3 weeks before we left for the Alps!
