Anyone interested in swapping their 19" wheels for 17"
« on: July 05, 2014, 08:49:42 pm »
Hi folks,

Is there anyone out there looking to swap their 19" wheels for my 17" ones? I'm prepared to sacrifice better ride quality for, in my opinion, a more aesthetically pleasing wheel. I currently have top grade Dunlop tyres (4k miles). Please contact me if you're interested, I live near to Glasgow.

Many thanks, Elred

My advice is be careful what you wish for. Definitely try a 19" car before deciding to change. My 19" wheels look great, and are brilliant on a smooth road but I do feel every bump and wrinkle on 99% of roads. Have had all four wheels balanced twice and it's still a bit over-sensitive. I do tend to stick with OEM issue though, so am not offering to swap..!

Thanks for this advice. I think I'll stick with my 17" wheels as I mentioned my dilemma to a Mazda mechanic who advised me that the 19" wheels all so transmitted considerably more road noise into the cabin.

Cheers, Elred
