Having had my Antara for a year, have come to the conclusion that it would be more comfortable on 17" wheels than the 19" the car came on. The 19's certainly look good, but with anno domini a little softer ride would be welcome. The tyres have done 8500 miles and the wheels are in perfect condition. I'd be interested in swop for similar condition but 17", anyone interested?

I have a set of 17's. They are 1 year old. 8000 miles. Tyres and wheels are perfect. Would be interested. They are not fitted to my antara just now as I have 20's fitted

I've got 17" on mine, standard fit for the Exclusiv model and I find them very comfy but just a bit woolly if I push the car a bit fast into corners etc. I fancied getting the 18" ones but if Travis had stayed a bit closer to Scotland I might have gone to see his 19's.


How did you find the change from 17's to 20's in terms comfort/harshness, road noise etc? The 20's must be pretty low profile.

I changed my 17's to 19's and find the 19's so much better, it's holds the road and corners better, I haven't noticed any more road noise or harshness. And they look soooo much better, best thing I ever did

The 20's are definitely firmer on the road. Road noise is similar but the looks make up for it. Been trying to upload photos but unable to with my iPhone.

Cheers John. As I say mine are not not fitted to the car. Distance. I'm sure we could sort something out. Thanks Colin.
