Wheels again

This has properly been asked before but I cant find it
Thinking of putting 17 wheels on a 2000 1.8 SW but after reading outher posts
I am concerned that the ride may suffer to much as the car is on standard shocks
Any one got experience of this

Re: Wheels again

I have 17' supersports on my 156 1.8TS and while the ride is harder than with standard 16' it is acceptable to me. It can be quite bad on very potholed roads but other than that I don't have any problems.

You could of course upgrade the shocks but that is going to cost you a bit. I don't have any experience of what upgraded shocks are like.

Tyre costs are of course dearer.
