Re: 18 '' alloys on 147
I ve just gone from 17s on a 147 to 18s and I fully expected to have a crap ride, but to my surprise it actually rides better on 18s. It is firmer, but its far less affected by bumps. I used to weave all over the road on 17s trying to avoid the slightest lttle bumps. Over 80% of bumps/ridges are barely felt on 18s, on 17s 90% were felt (and heard!-was same with 156 on 17s). There are a few really bad bumps that that it rides worse over on 18s compared to 17s, but most its better. It handles better to, but that was to be expected, the more composed (but firmer) ride is a bonus. Its a subjective thing, though and down to personal preferance-Can you find a car to try?
