I'm hoping the 18" is less vulnerable than the allgrip 19" frinstance.The smaller the alloy the larger the amount of rubber which bulges to the sides to protect the alloy. My last couple of cars and the GT I have ordered have larger alloys so are easier to damage.
A friend of mine recommended these:
I am prone to kerbing so am definitely considering them.
I doubt if 17" will be an option out here Agmuns. The 1.6 petrol Allure and diesel GT are all the choice we get apparently......a tough choice because diesel is consistently cheaper, thus locking us into expensive big wheels either way.Both the 18" and 19" original wheels for the 3008 have tall side walls. It's also possible to get 17" originals. The image shows the standard winter rims in Norway (for 3008)
Thanks Beards, that's what I thought I'd read somewhere also......trying to winkle it out.I read somewhere (sorry Dave can't find it) that the Los Angeles with Advanced Grip Control are better.
If memory serves me correct it was something to do with the alloys do not protrude as much and the rubber has a larger compound.
