    Hi guys I’ve got a seat Leon fr 2017 which I love . when I bought it it came with upgraded 18inch alloy wheels . I’m finding the 18inch wheels uncomfortable and I was just wondering if anyone can tell me is it possible to put 16inch seat alloy wheels on my car of the same year .

    I cant see why not.... it's only like putting bigger rims on a car with smaller wheels from standard, just make sure your tyre size compensates for some of the difference and will keep your speedo reading truer :)

    just make sure they're of 5x112 fitment too, why not try a 17" wheels first with slightly thicker tyre wall? that should make it a comfier ride

    the 180/184 has bigger brakes than the 150's - maybe something to consider if moving to smaller wheels
