sorry this is another question...... :innocent:

I love the look of the XSE, with the 18" wheels as standard.

has anyone in the UK found a good place to buy alloy wheels and tyres

I've seen an ad for a set of Allesso (sp?) 5 spoke 18" wheels with tyres for £800-900 delivered

anyone else changed the wheels?

does it affect the ride? as the ride is quite firm even before you change to bigger rims.

Its got to be OK as many people have put 20's on,...but UK roads are awful and I think I'll need to retain some of the bouncy given by big tyres

any advice or experience appreciated :( :)

IMHO I think the XSE with it's larger road biased tyres rides a LOT better than a std wheel/tyre combo.
Tyres make a huge difference to a cars ride, the std factory ones tend to be a bit hard in compound, the XSE gets some nice continentals.
