16" or 17" - Differences

Ok guys!

I think I still have the option to change my wheel size from 16” to 17” as the car won’t have gone into production yet.

Can anyone please tell me what the benefits are or should I stick with 16”?!!!

even with my limited knowledge I know that 17" are bigger than 16" wheels!!

Here in Japan, the sales of the first production for Japan started from April 14 and we do not have many choices at the moment.
I purchased one of the last cars in stock (Cooper S) with 16" as a standard.

You can order your choice but we need to wait for July production and September/October delivery to Japan.

I think you can change the wheels and tyres after while anyway.
