18" JCW Alloys on R56 Cooper S

HI,

I am looking at purchasing an R56 Cooper S but the dealer has advised rather than having 17" S spoke alloys, it has been fitted with 18" JCW Alloys.

What is the ride/clearance like with 18"s?

I'm upgrading from a 2006 R50 with 17"s

Thanks,

Sam

With a stock tire fitment 18" wheels will have less tire sidewall than 17" wheels. Less sidewall means less ride comfort.
