Just about to buy a GT with 18 inch alloys. Ive heard that the ride is much harder on 18's. Is that the case? Aanyone found a good place to get tyres from? If so what would I be looking at paying? Wwhat size are the tyres on the 18's. Cheers

Don't worry about the ride.. just buy it! :cool:

What I would do is buy some 16" wheels to put on during the dark winter nights. For one thing you don't want to be wearing out your expensive 18" tyres driving about at 30mph (sleet, snow, rain, fog) and another, you'll wreck those wheels the first pot-hole you don't see.

it is both subjective, and depends on what tyres you use.

i have 19s with toyo Proxes4 225/35 tyres. the ride comfort is better than the original 17s with Bridgestone RE050 tyres.

i didn't change the suspension at the same time i changed wheels/tyres, but my suspension is upgraded, to KONI Sport dampers and Eibach springs. this helps considerably too, but is a separate issue.
