436M alloys

Post by stevei » Mon Sep 11, 2017 10:26 am

I'm thinking about getting some of these for my 116i Sport.
What will the change in ride be from moving from 17 to 18" ?
I had 19"s on my last car (Astra GTC) and the ride was harsh as feck.

Depends on the tyres. If you're going from 17" Runcraps to 18" proper tyres, the ride could be more comfortable.

MPSS are reasonably firm, but not rock solid like Runcraps. Ride should be pretty similar.
