That sounds as though 15mm spacers are the answer to a question that 0.5% of owners might have asked. I certainly can’t recall any complaints being raised in these pages about the handling of the Sportage.Took the plunge and put 15mm Spacers all round, certainly improves the handling.
No increase in Premium, also enquired about going to 20" instead of the 19"s and also no increase in premium.How much did your insurance increase? I know someone who did similar, after a crash his insurance refused to pay up as he hadn't informed them. £35,000 written off and he didn't get a penny.
Do people honestly think that a major international manufacturer has not done sufficient testing to ascertain the best configuration for the car. Fitting wheels with an additional 15mm of offset would cost nothing and if it gave a better result they would have done it.Took the plunge and put 15mm Spacers all round, certainly improves the handling.
I suppose you are aware that 20's will only spoil the ride and in the real world have no positives unless you think people who see your car will be impressed by the huge pointless wheels.Thought about 20's to fill the arches a bit more.
Agree lolgeoff. Insurance cannot wiggle out of third party claims - even if your car is stolen by a 13 year old on crystal meth the insurance company has to meet third party claims arising.The OP states what he's done to his vehicle, now that might be interesting to some and not others. I would imagine he knows what he is doing and happy doing it. Why are some of the other posters questioning what he's done in a holier than though attitude? And when someone so much as changes something why does the "I hope you've told your insurance company because the world will end if you don't" start appearing, it doesn't affect anyone apart from the policy holder it wouldn't have any affect on any third party claims.
We are still searching for a new motor and having had an MPV in the past and since we liked the higher driving position we thought we would look at SUV's.I like the high driving position, I like the space inside, I like the price and I like the looks.
"I hope you've told your insurance company " so you don't think that was an intelligent comment! Well, that's your opinion. I know someone who had his £35,00 claim refused for that very reason. His comment "I didn't know I needed to inform them." Not everyone can afford to lose £35,000.
