Can someone who has driven both 17in and 20in wheel on CX50 comment on difference in ride quality and characteristics? I would think that 17in wheel offers more smoother and quieter ride than 20in when using same tires?
The noise level is not different from what I can tell. The ride is a bit smoother on the smaller wheels but not enough to make me choose the smaller ones. That said, I have only driven them on the road and not off road. I'm sure there is a more significant difference.
