Just bought QQ for missus and very happy by far with the features etc.
It came with 19" rims and wondering if anyone has done swapping it down to 17" or 18"?
Thanks and look forward to be part in the forum. Cheers

KyraElora, Good Day and welcome to the Forum. !
You could try looking in the “Search” Area where normally all the Old Data & Facts are, but I could not find anything specific there, but am sure other members will answer.
We have the QQ Tekna + which we decided to have with 19” “Wind” Nissan Alloys with Michelin Tyres for the Summer. This is our 2nd QQ Tekna with 19” Wheels and personally find them OK. As here we do get a Winter period we have to have a Set of Winter Wheels / Tyres and we went for 17” Giacuzzo Alloys with Falken Tyres also found these to be OK. With the old QQ we had 16” Winter Steel Wheels which were also OK. You do naturally get a different feel on the Steering / Ride Quality with narrower smaller Tyres but nothing dramatic.

To help answer your question do you have any specific reason for the question of changing to Smaller Wheels (Road Quality in Oz) as this might help the answer from other members - Dave 😉
