    Greeting to you all, ladies and gentlemen.
    As a recent new owner (Hurrah!) of a 1.3 I am curious to know if the little Copo feels much different when it runs on 14" wheels? I would appreciate comments from those with first hand knowledge of the situation, but of course...all comments gratefully recieved!

    I am inclined to think that 14" wheels, and a larger profile tyre, may possibly give a slightly more retro look?

    I have 14 and 15 inch original equipment Daihatsu alloys with 165/50 R15 and 165/60 R14 tyres. To be quite honest I do not feel much of a difference. The 14 inch wheels might be a little softer but apart from that it is negligible.

    Mine has 16" rims and was on 45 profiles - I couldn't get any new ones easily and had to go to 40s
    I was expecting it to be worse than the previous dentist friendly ride but amazingly it was a lot better
    No idea why, could be softer rubber?
