Hi, I moved from 15inch to 17inch for my 623. The ride is quite a bit harsher and you get more noise. But in the end I stuck with the rover vitesse 17inch and got the best tyres I could. The cornering was so much more solid and the car just looks better. IIRC the tyres were 215/45 on the 17inch. HTH

I bet it does look better! Did you sense any effect on acceleration? Might be more of an issue with the smaller 2L engine?
