I am considering changing my 16" runlat wheels and tyres to 17" wheels with standard tyres. The ride on the 16" RF is choppy around London. Does anyone know if the 17" would be better or worse (ie although they would be lower profile would the fact that they are not run flats mean that the ride will be better)

I had 17" run flats and just changed to regular tires about a week ago. The ride is way different. It is so much smoother, i can easily go over speed bumps and not bounce around. As far as for you in London im not sure, considering our roads are pretty smooth in the US, but the rides is no to bad with 17" regular tires.

Tyres

I am running non runflat 17" tyres (Pirelli Assim`s) and they make a big difference in my opinion, for the better of course ! :)
