Mini Cooper S Clubman- 18" or 19"

Recommended Posts

Hi there, I’m getting my ride next weekend. Currently it is fitted with 18’.

Any fellow mini buddies out there fitted with 19’?

Can you share your views?

Is the ride really very much Firmer?

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

That's why Mini can enter or exit expressway around 80 w/o tyre screeching.

 

Only ole man will says it is uncomfortable

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.

will switching out of run- flats help?

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

bro, I had one set in my pervious ride. the mini is my wife car and I am very sure that she don't know how to

operate that equipment.

 

can you imagine that she asked me what is the 2 ears one with a '+' and the other one what a '-' behind the steering wheel?

nice rims but I still prefer comfort than sporty else will defeat the propose of changing my hatchback to clubman.

 

yours new ride is british racing green white top with black interior?

 

clubman seem to have default auto headlight and DRL cannot be switched off.

Burgundy with blue interior. the car feel very stable but the drive is not as engaging as the hatchback.
