It's easy to make a mistake when shopping for brakes on a Volvo as almost every model could be had with multiple combinations of brake rotor sizes. Whether the varying sizes were intended for performance or police applications, there is always some sort of brake upgrade available. Even if you are not interested in upgrading and want to replace with the exact parts, it's important to know your size and how to order based on measurements.
Need to determine what size rotors your Volvo has?
1993-2004 Volvo P80 Vehicles
Two sizes of front brakes were offered for the Volvo 850, S70, V70, & C70.
- 280mm (~11")
- 302mm (~11.8")
The 302mm upgrade is achieved by installing the appropriate caliper mounting brackets and rotors. Calipers and pads remain the same.
2001-2009 Volvo P2 Vehicles
The P2 chassis encompassed smaller vehicles like the FWD S60, all the way up to the AWD behemoth known as the XC90 SUV, and used front brake sizes. Though they shared the same platform, different sized brakes were needed to meet the needs of a widely-varying vehicle lineup.
- 286mm (~11.2")
- 305mm (12")
- 320mm (12.6")
- 330mm (13" R-Fitment)
