    Default 17" or 19" which ones more comfortable

    Hi guys
    My first post on the forum I own a vauxhall vectra sri cdti and have 19" snowflake alloy wheels but my ride is so uncomfortable every pothole every crack i can feel

    Thinking of getting the 17" wheels will these wheels improve my ride on the road

    Regards

    Yea 17" are deffernatly better than 19" for comfort.

    I went from standard 17" sri wheels to 19" snowflakes and the ride is very harsh, but they look good so i can live with it

    They will slightly, as there is more tyre between the wheel and the road.

    How about 18" snowies? They fall midway between your two choices?
