I know this is an OLD thread, but can I please get some feed back on how people are getting on with ride quality on 18 inch vs 19 or 20 inch rims? I ask as my car has 18s and would say that the ride quality is only just acceptable. However I am tempted to get a set of 19in 5 Spokes.

I have the 19” tyres on Laser Cut wheels and it’s great.

Mine are 19 in 5031s. The ride quality is superb- I will go for 20ins for my next F-Pace as I think they look a touch better and I doubt the ride quality will change that much.
The bigger question is the plug in hybrid though?
Not sure if a 33 mile electric option is worth it?

18 is too small in my eyes - this is my old car that came with 18”, which I ended up upgrading to 20” and out winter tyres on the 18’s

If you are looking for ride quality the 18 in tyres at recommended pressures is as good as it gets, even then some would say it’s firm, it is a sporting SUV after all, lower profile tyres are a firmer ride. I does vary according to tyre type, summer tyres like Pirelli P Zero are inflexible whereas All Season tyres are more compliant
