Also, it might be that the 16 X 6-1/2 is actually a 16 X 6, strange as that may be. I certainly could be wrong, here. I say this 'cause the 215/55-16 tires that are on an SE, versus the 195/65-15 tires that are on an S -- stick out a whole lot more than a section size difference of 10mm per side!

Note that all of these wheels are about 63.9mm hub bore I think. They are all hub-centric.

The Volvo rims which are 5 X 108 Bolt Circle Diameter (BCD) are 65.1mm hub bore. You need those special hub spacer rings to make up this difference. Those would be pretty darned thin hub spacers! You must have the wheels properly fixed on the hubs!
.6mm (.023") of play isn't going to make a difference. 28HopUp was successful with Volvo Wheels without spacers. But for the "professional" wheel and tire people will say you will need spacers.
