How do the fare out?
Are they noisier than the 19's on the R Line?
Do they tramline?
I am changing my car this year and am anxious to get the 20's specd into it but somr friends say 20's will ruin the ride of it.

Opinions?

Irish Rline spec come with 19's as standard.
20's are option along with lower suspension.
Thanks

I have 20s on an R line. The whole car is way nice than the ride I had on 18s on the previous car. I wouldn't hesitate to get the 20s unless you have some seriously nasty bumps to attend to everyday.

Hi vectra
My r line highline has 19 inch - very quiet. Decent ride and think they look good - can see a pic in members gallery...just in case you want to put the extra cash into some other spec...

I've got the 20s continental on the r line.
I think the UK tends to have continentals or Pirelli.
It does look right for the size/shape of the car.
but I hate to think about replacing them..

The ride is comfy enough, a touch softer than the X4 msport suspension with 20s wheels

Got 20" wheels on a sport chassis with Pirelli's - pictures in the gallery

Rides firm but not harsh (if you like the soft "Landi" ride you won't like it) makes the car quite handleable through the twisty bits but a smooth cruiser on A & M ways; even those under repair.

I looked at the replacement cost and they are not too bad but I think I would save myself some cash and not select the self-healing types as there is a spare.

Cheers Earl

Just a ditty.
I see the latest Renault Scenic comes with 20's only right through out the range, but with a higher wall than the R Line.
Not sure how it would look but would have liked a higher wall than they are, less chance of kerbing :D

Ha - 20" alloys (low profile) and kerbing :( now that is a problem with any large diameter low profile tyre

Don't know why :oops: but anyone got a paint code for the grey Miramars. :?:

In my opinion the 20 inch alloys on the Tiguan suit the car. They don't look that big as fill up the arches nicely.

With regards to the ride, it is lovely. It does not crash over potholes and the car does not lean much in corners. Actually feels very stable for a big car. I've just given my Golf R and M135i back so have some idea of good/bad ride quality experiences. Obviously, if you really are going off road then avoid them.
