Currently have the 15inch Heli spoke alloys on my cooper and I'm not a huge fan of the appearance Looking to upgrade to some different OEM ones and not sure whether to go 16 or 17. Not too fussed about how they effect the ride, would prefer the size which offers better handling. Thanks

I've got both 16" and 17" wheels for my cooper S. I've not noticed much of a difference in terms of handling but if you want firmer/harsher ride, the 17's will do that. Personally, I prefer the 16's but most prefer the 17's as they are better looking. I've got 15's on my other car (not a mini) and that does feel a bit squidgy. 17's on that were not the most comfortable experience.

16's


17's

Thanks, I really like the Cosmo spoke. They are at the top of my list for choice at the moment
