Upgrading standard alloys

Postby antos » Sat Jul 18, 2009 5:48 pm

Megane 04 1.6 VVT Privilege Saloon

Hi fellow members. Currently I have the standard 16'' alloys on
my megane. Looking to upgrade to 17'' alloys. Will these go
straight on or will I need to lower the car as I dont want it
looking like a 4x4? Also how will it effect the handling and
speedo calibration?

Thanks in anticipation

Ant

If you switch to 17'' with 205/50 there will be no big difference for speedo, only a bit firmer ride, and better control through bends. I'd go for Renault original 17'' Steppe or Nervastella.

The 17" on the Dynamique Megane's are Nervasports arent they? The NervaStella's are the 16" 6 spoke.
