Opinion On The Comfort Different Between 17'' Or 18''


Recommended Posts

Please, I need opinion on the comfort difference between 17'' or 18'' alloys.

I am currently on the standard 17'' for my is200 but i really like the way 18'' alloy wheels look on most car i have seen on this forum so i need help knowing if there is a big comfort difference between this 2 size before buying.

Thanks for your help in advance

Marginal negative difference to the ride that is completely off-set by the vehicle stance when the wheel arch is filled.


thanks for the reply but i don't really understand what u meant by the negative difference will be completely off-set by the vehicle stance when wheel arch is filled.

do i need to do any other thing after fitting the 18'' rims

sorry but i don't have a clue what it means i was just hoping to buy 18'' but not lower the car if thats what your mean

Larger diameter wheels have lower profile tires that are stiffer in compression thereby giving a slightly stiffer ride whilst the suspension remains the same height but their combined diameter is larger better filling the wheel arch which, to most Petrol Heads, looks much better.
