i am building this site right now, so it is sill under construction.)
you are right in that the 17" will be bone shaking...howver, strange thing:
my friend has a 166 and he fitted the 17" wheels from the v6 version, and i drove it a couple of times. quite astonishingly, it had a VERY good ride. seriously, i wouldl've thought it would have a very harsh ride, but it was better than the 147 on 16s, imo, which makes Stori's point sound very believable.
howver might i add that he has a puncture at least once a month, just YESTERDAY he had to replace TWO tyres!! this is what he says: kull hoffra, puncture!!!)
this means that every pothole he hits will get him a puncture. and most of the time, the tyre is destroyed so he will have to replace it (note that 17" tyres are quite expensive!!!)
still think that 16" are the best for the 147! although they do look a bit small after looking at the 166's wheels
