So we are trading our 18 TD6 for a 19 of some sort...we thing that we are going to "upgrade" to the V8SC as finding another diesel seems in MY 19 is nearly impossible. Every V8SC that we have seen all come with the 22" wheels. Living in a state that has miserable roads, we are really concerned about constantly bending and breaking wheels (I thinks we went through something like 9-10 wheels on our e63 wagon). Wheel and tire insurance is a must but still the inconvenience is the real issues.
I would like some opinions from people that have gone from the 20" wheels to the 21" or 22" and how much did it degrade comfort. Or HSE TD6 is one of the most comfortable cars ever and the RR that we have driven with the 22s seem to be very harsh. Also since we bought a set of Hakkaplitas for snow use, we are likely to end up with another set of 20s for the winter anyway.
Two questions....how is the LR wheels and tire insurance (as with the 20s we opted out). And how punishing are the 21" and 22" options?
