some advice please
I have 15 inch crowns at the moment but im not that keen as i think the look like wheel trims. I am considering some 17 inch alloys but im a bit scared that they will ruin the ride quality. i know in the past some have said dont go for 17 but othershave said go for it. so could somebody make my mind up for me please.
thanks

I changed my crowns for 17" Serpents last year I was concerned beforehand that it may ruin the 75's fantastic ride. I am pleased to say not only do they look fantastic and transform the 75 look, the ride IMO is stil excellent.

Guys

Look on ebay for genuine Rover 16" alloys from the facelift 75. I bought mine for less than £50 per alloy to replace my crowns which had started to rust in places. These were listed at over £600 quid in the Rover accesories booklet I have, a bargain or what.
