Initial Review, 1000 Miles on Tires

YES, they will fit and they do not rub. I've had trucks my entire life... so moving to a Volvo XC70 was quite the shock. AWD is great, but it's only good if you have good traction. The BFgoodrich All Terrain K/O has incredible traction year round in any condition. I have driven through some of the worst winter storms on the I-70 corridor in Colorado. On more than one occasion the west side of Eisenhower pass was complete ice and cars and trucks were sliding backwards down the highway... piles of 30-40 cars stuck together on the low part of the curves... crazy stuff. I drove right up the pass through all of the carnage and was usually the only one who made it. It was like a pinball game... Yes, they are a little noisier than an all season touring radial that should go on the XC70, but they handle so much better. The super strong sidewall makes it handle like it has a lower profile tire. The handling and responsiveness is so much better. I like to be able to go anywhere anytime, dirt, snow, mud, dry pavement. The BFgoodrich All Terrain K/O provide me with the maximum traction, year round, for any situation without having to swap summer/winter tires on my grocery getter volvo wagon. I know my new ride is not a truck, but at least I don't feel like a sitting duck when the weather conditions get bad. I have driven over 300,000 miles on the BFgoodrich All Terrain over the years. I'm ecstatic that the smallest size they make fits on my Volvo XC70.
