Garage List
205 in the front should be ok i think

i run 225/40/18 on my s60R

for driving on snow (starting from 5cm) my front tires are to wide

on snow surfaces i experience heavy understeer and have to drive any roundabout (or sharper turn) with about 10km/h to avoid going straight

and the volvo weighs 1650kg - so you would think 225 would be ok

i sometimes wish i had 205/50/17 - but when there is no real snow surface the handling / feeling of the car is better with my configuration

i once had a v10 touareg (2670kg) and 265 tires worked fine on snow - so you see weight is a big factor
if you're cast on thin ice, you may as well dance

enjoy your cars
