T roc with 17" wheels as opposed to 18" - ride quality.

Post by MitieRoc » Thu Jun 03, 2021 3:35 pm

I am changing to T roc automatic 1.5 petrol from a mondeo 2.2 tdci manual with 16" wheels and have always considered 16" best for ride quality. Saw a nice one today but with 18" wheels and wary, Roads here are either speed ramps or rutted.

Anyone driven the 17 and the 18 and will I notice a difference? We are still restricted so difficult to get to a dealer.

Does that kangaroo effect stil exist? I do mostly town driving

There's a few on here including myself on 19" rims and as far as I can remember, we're all happy with the ride quality considering their size.
18's will obviously give an even better ride & 17's better still 🤷‍♂️

The latest 1.5's seem to be alright as far as the kangaroo goes but some owners maintain there is a slight hint of the kangaroo although barely noticeable 🤔

I 've got 19 inch and they seem fine although i do slow down a bit more on speed bumps but I think that is their purpose anyway !

Went to dealer and car was sold. One other Q can the 18" be replaced with 17" ie just swop them over?
