Not so much the wheels but more to do with what tyres are fitted...Brands and what width and profile the tyres have.

Low profile tyres will give better stability under cornering as they wont deform as much as fatter profile however the ride will be a tad harder.

Also the wider the tyre the heavier the steering can become at low speeds.

Nice to see another member from Gosport - Welcome in Mark :)

The P12 came with both 16" and 17" alloys from the factory, so it should handle as Nissan designed it to.

Our old 12 came with factory 17"s and ended up on 19"s.

Enjoy the forums and take care,
Shaun

Did all the maintenance ourselves on our P12 and fixed all the little quirks ourselves too.
