You are right about reviewers. They have different opinions and different views of course. I was very wary with my XF on the difference wheel sizes made, but on a different car it is completely different. The key is, as you rightly say, to find the mix that works for you.Smitten wrote: ↑Sun May 27, 2018 10:55 pmI have to say I think there have been a lot of un justified negative comments about the ride quality of 22 inch rims perhaps fed through from the preferences of some reviewers. I felt the car had a tendency to wallow and bounce on 20 inch rims which was quite uncomfortable around town over speed humps etc. I prefer the handling on the 22 inch and the ride. Feels very sure footed and to be honest I cannot tell any difference in road noise. They don't half look good too!ChrisC wrote: ↑Sun May 27, 2018 9:14 pmI tested a 3.0d yesterday. And had a good chance to fiddle with the adaptive dynamics. I thought it made a decent difference to the ride quality. It was on 20" wheels and I did wonder if that was the ideal combination. What worried me about bigger wheels was the ride, but also road noise possibly.jmb wrote: ↑Sun May 27, 2018 4:48 pmK187,
Thx for the advice.
I tested 2 models ( petrol 250 hp ) and the V6 - both had 22 inch wheels . The 2.0 petrol has a really firm ride but the V6 was much smoother and I guess the difference is the Adaptive dynamics - I was quite comfortable with the ride on the V6 but wonder whether choosing 20 inch would have made for a better ride ? Still the 22 inch black double helix do look nice on the F pace and it does go well with the black pack - I certainly recommend the combination as it looks quite striking and aggressive but in a nice sort of way -
So far I've driven the 180 and 240 diesels on passive suspension, and now the 3.0 on adaptive. I do think there is a difference with the adaptive, although I know other on here have a different view. My initial focus was on a factory order of a 2.0 petrol with a spec including AD. But having driven a used 3.0d I am now rethinking that one.
