yeah, i was actually warning you not to bother with the 18s.....they look good but its a big trade off in ride quality on rough roads. Roads by me arent good and the interior is already rattling and vibrating at 10k miles.

Hi , have 18" wheels on the Soul Tempest diesel and the ride is not to bad at all and it makes it look good with the black/alloy wheels ,I have no rattles and the roads where I live are terrible with potholes you could hide a machine gun post in. I don't think I have driven the one with smaller wheels but test drove a Samba before I bought the Tempest and I am not sure what size wheels that had on it. I have nothing to compare mine against but my other car has very hard suspension so maybe I am more used to a hard ride. My wife now drives the Soul more than I do and she had a Citroen before which had very soft suspension and she has not complained about the ride,bearing in mind that she complains about everything else it can only be ok on the Soul.
