19 incl versus 20 inch wheels?

Post by MarkW » Thu Feb 21, 2019 10:07 am

HI Guys,
New member about to pick up 2017 HSE.
Here's my question...
19 incl versus 20 inch wheels?

I have the option from the garage.
Based in Ireland, Weather is very rarely snow,
occasional slight frost/ice &
mostly I will be just road-going driving.
Ride comfort is more important than looks.
Any advice welcome.

I would go with the 20 inch rims.
Tires in 19" size are hard to get. Even off road shops offer sets with the 20 inch rims and General Grabber AT3 or Goodyear Wrangler Duratrac.
Do you have the air suspension? My D5 came with 22 inch wheels and the air suspension is so comfortable, that I don't notice the difference to my 20" wheels. (On my Disco Sport I swapped from 20 inch to 18" because 20 inch was to uncomfortable, even though I got the adaptive dynamics (magna ride).)

Greets,
