Volvo Car Tyres
Fitted at home or workChoose from a huge range of replacement tyres for your Volvo, available from etyres online today.
etyres prices are less expensive than the main dealerships and tyre depots and you can enjoy the convenience of having them fitted at your home or work.
Here are some examples of tyres fitted to popular Volvo models – but we advise you to check the size of the tyres currently fitted to your vehicle before placing your order. You can find this information on the sidewall of your existing tyre.
S40The Volvo S40, a nimble and stylish mid-size saloon, is a popular executive car. With this in mind it requires tyres that offer long wear and that provide a comfortable and quiet ride for motorway driving. The Pirelli P7, Uniroyal Rainsport 2 and Avon ZZ3 all provide long tyre life, superb grip and excellent road holding.
V50The estate version of the S40, the V50 is Volvo’s most popular sportswagon. Factory fitted with Pirelli P6000 and ContiSportContact 3s, this model requires tyres that provide lots of grip and match the vehicle’s sharp handling, and Michelin Primacy HP and the Firestone TZ200 offer suitable alternative replacement options.
XC60Volvo’s family cross over vehicle, the XC60 is designed to be an environmentally friendly SUV, providing a classy ride rather than superior off roading. Factory fitted with Pirelli P Zero Rossos and ContiCrossContacts the vehicle demands tyres that have low rolling resistance in order to achieve its impressive economy and emissions figures. The General Grabber UHP, Vredestein Wintrac 4 Extreme and Bridgestone Dueler HP Sport are all suitable replacement tyres.

Volvo Background InformationVolvo is known for its Scandinavian design, high safety standards and for producing vehicles that achieve high mileage. The tyres fitted to your Volvo at manufacture were carefully selected to meet a whole range of criteria; safety, fuel economy, handling, performance and ride comfort. Many motorists choose to retain the original tyre choice when replacing old rubber, and for those who don’t etyres can recommend a number of suitable replacement tyres depending on your model and driving preferences.
Changing Volvo Tyres
Changing Volvo Car Tyres should require 3 primary choices:
- The overall quality of the tyre (durability, wear, ratings, cost) desired for the Volvo
- The speed rating that the Volvo Tyres should have depending upon the driver's average and occasional "fastest-driven" speed
- Deciding if local and/or regional weather patterns merit keeping two sets of tyres for dry vs. wet road conditions
Further, if an owner wishes to put tyres on different sized wheels for the Volvo, a careful decision about what size tyres will be valid for that Volvo is required. If, for example, a larger wheel size is desired, then the profile (height) and/or the width must be reduced to avoid damaging the drive train. A 195/65/15 tyre for that Volvo, for instance, on a 17" rim, could legitimately become a 165/65 (narrower) or a 195/55 (shorter) but could not stay a 195/65 as before. Using or handy calculator for changing tyre sizesshould be all you need to help you find the right tyre size.
All tyres for any Volvo vehicle should be fitted using the proper torque, according to the manufacturer's specifications. Torque is the amount of pressure used to tighten the wheel nuts. This table of torque settings displays the torque settings, the recommended air pressure to put into tyres and the alternate tyre size for Volvo models.
