Asked by Alan Harper
I often wonder why car manufacturers put different size wheels on similar models of cars, for instance both Falcons and Commodores can have wheels from 16 inch to 19 inch. Does the larger wheel give a more comfortable ride?
Answered by CarsGuide29 Jan 2016
Larger wheels are used mostly for styling and image reasons, plus the fact that the carmakers can charge more for them. As for the ride, larger wheels go in tandem with low profile tyres, which ride harder and are less comfortable.
