Default Wheel / tire upgrade

Just picked up a 2005 V50 2.4i for a road trip car, and just couldn't quite warm up to the wheels. Happily, some wheels and tires off a 2017 V60 T5 showed up on Craigslist, and a short while later the car looks a LOT better (IMHO). Tire size went from 205/55/16 to 215/50/18, which is a calculated 0.6" increase in diameter, or about 2.4%.

Before:





After:
