Yes I agree with you on that point but really I did not feel big difference other then the car is more stick to the road with nicely / sporty feeling. Did you test drive the car that had 17" with runflats or without them. Cause without runflats there is difference, big one... In general ok I might be not good address for this since I am coming from 1 series with M-suspension and 18" wheels with 35% tire height so that was true go-kart =). Now that I have X1 without sport suspension on 18" that is true comfort for me.
