    Smile Report As Promised.

    Well i did say that i would report on the ride and comfort of my new 19's so here goes.
    to start with i find that the ride is a little rougher but not that much to go changing them back lol.
    the stearing and handling is phenominal to say the least it tends to stick to corners very well.
    i do find under braking though that the car tends to jump side ways sometimes.(any ideas welcome on that point?)
    the stearing seems to be a lot more responsive thats why i think it snatches when i brake.or if i touch a white line.
    thanks nick.

    The 19s are very sensitive to incorrect tyre pressures, so keep your eye on them.

    I find the 19`s the same, ant differences in road surface and they tend to tram line, especially coming off a dual carriageway at 70ish and hitting the white lines, gets a little twitchy. I am finding them a lot rougher on the road with the colder weather as well. It is caused because the tyres profile is so low there is no give in them ...

    But then the handling more than makes up for a few little niggles ....

    Thats where the Mercs and Beemers have an advantage, there is just so much power you can put through the front wheels, the V6 above them should help with traction though ...
