Suggestions on new Alfa 159!
As already mentioned on my previous thread i might be buying a new 159 but due to our high registration taxes, in Malta, i will be opting for the 1.8L engine.
This week i had a test drive in a 1.8L and i must say that i found the drive a bit slow. Maybe because we were 3 people in the car and the AC was on! But this is not why am actually writing this thread. The car which i test drive had 17 inch Alloy wheels 225/55 and the ride was comfortable. But i am willing to get the 18inch Alloy wheels. My questions are as follows: -
1. Will the ride be very different if i opt for the 18inches 235/45? The 18inchs are lot nicer.
2. Will the extra weight of 5 x 18inch alloy wheels (including spare wheel) effect the acceleration of the car. Make it more slower?
I would appreciate your suggestions.
Thanks & Regards
