I agree totally with you I am keeping the standard portfolio 19" wheels the roads around here are awful lots of punctures etc although the car is pretty and sporty looking its still an SUV. I have just put on 4 tyres on my XF before it goes do not want to do that to often.RaVolVoR said:Some of us are completely agnostic to wheel size, I just doesn't make any difference to me personally (sorry if that upsets people but I simply just don't care!). If there was a specific need for me to have bigger wheels I would but I like the look of the car regardless and have put my money into options that will I think make the car more suitable for my needs. Its my car, my choice and my preference, go with what you want / like / afford.
From this forum its clear that the chances of any of us parking next to an identical car is slim, almost impossible. In itself that adds to the pleasure knowing that you own something unique!
Agreed although the sidewall height on the 22s is the same as the 20s on my RRE - not really that low profileSonicPace said:I have kerbed one of my 22" alloys already, that is less likely to happen on the 20's.
So maybe also consider where you park your car. I scratched mine exiting a multi-story car park.
I was lucky, my XF qualified or a new set of tyres courtesy of Jaguar due to some big issue with economy and complaints (but I never had any economy issues with my XF) in March! It was a worry up to then because the old ones wouldn't have lasted to the original date of Sept so it saved me best part of £600.. thank you Jaguargaryxf said:I have just put on 4 tyres on my XF before it goes do not want to do that to often.
the kerbed scratches will add 'character' to mine :roll:ASM33 said:Having said that jij jin congrats on your upgrade, at least makes mine look a bit more unique
I think you have just sold me the 22"CarlFRZ434 said:I compare the 22" wheels as an accent to the overall car package, as your wives would when they get all dolled up for a night out. We want our cars to look nice,like our wives want themselves to look nice. Black pack = mascara; paint colour = dress colour, other options internally or externally = underwear and jewellery. So the wheels therefore can only be the shoes. Call me old fashioned but if my misses got all dolled up to the nines then slung on a pair of thick rubber soled Nike Airs it would ruin the look same with the car, so the 22" for the car are like sexy high heels for the misses!! :lol:
Paul you know you want one really... :mrgreen: just think of the exhaust note and the residuals are better... That might offset 3 mpg at least :lol: :lol:JLRnumber5 said:
