One inch up won’t make a noticeable difference in ride quality. If u were ok with 18 during testing, 19 is fine too. However, spend more on tyres n brakes suspension components wear faster slightly, if tat bothers u

18" = 18 inch

 

18' = 18 foot

 

Just FYI.

Is the ride really very much Firmer?

just collected my clubman s on last weekend.

 

no intention to change it to 19" rim coz it will reduce it comfort level. I had 18" on my pervious 5 drs coopers s and the ride is

definitely harder than the original 17". but again the positioning of hatch back and clubman is totally different.

 

18" should be the right size for clubman s without reducing your ride comfort.

 

pls take note that the brake may produce some sound when braking at low speed if you put on after market rims, this is what

happen to my pervious 5 drs cooper s.

ride comfort will increase. I switched out the run-flat on my pervious ride and replace by pss, ride comfort

and handling improved. but need to worry about flat tires when we travel to Malaysia.

 

clubman is still very comfortable and quiet on run-flat. the feel is totally different from hatchback mini. moreover

clubman s came in 8 speed gearbox and the engine feel silky smooth.

 

take time to get used to the relatively small rear view window.

Was offered (attached picture) at a pretty good price for trading in my stock rims... the test drive was good with the 18" but the back passengers may find it a tad too firm.... and with 19" no sure how much firmer the ride will get

If u can live w the oredi harsh ride on the 18s, a little harsher on the 19s will make little difference.

And who cares what the backseat passengers think? They oredi kena tortured by the tight space at the back. What’s a little bit more pain?....LOL

yes, definitely more engaging than the countryman. was looking at the countryman s but find it too expansive.

 

I think clubman is a more balance car within mini family, not too big (countryman) nor too small (hatchback).

it will loss some drive fun compare to the hatch but it give you higher level of comfort with more leg room in a

bigger interior.

 

I like it van type of rear door opening but it will be a challenge to install rear dashcam. MH will not install rear

dashcam for you. I get it done outside and installed a backup battery pack. do look for a experience installer to

install rear dashcam as it is not an easy job. you will lost your warranty if short circuit.
