Just bought some 21 inch genuine wheels for my 2013 diesel 3ltr
Anything I need to watch out for when swapping out my 19’s ?

Assume using same bolts etc.

I did check the offset is correct for my car .
TIA

Watch out for the deteriorated ride quality. I have 21 inch wheels and hate them. Give me high profile rubber for a vehicle of this type any day.

I agree, just put some 19" winter wheels on, from my 21" summer's its like putting slippers on your wheels.

Not fitted them yet ,
Does changing the suspension from normal to comfort make it better ??

Don't hold your breath on that.

I've a claim in with East Sussex Highways for damage to my Mercedes and their projected response time is a joke. Add up the intermediate stages and it amounts to 138 days. They've already failed the first target, so that could be optimistic.

20s are ok with a 45 profile, who would think an inch would make so much difference but it does!

Feedback :

Well , I fitted them .
A smidge harsher but not overly noticeable I have to say ( this surprised me )
There is a tad more road noise. Again no problem .

I would say the steering is heavier though but I can live with that .
All in all glad I did the swop .
Cheers
