Re: Can a second hand car have too few miles?!
TBH, in a car so softly-sprung as a Scenic, a 1" diameter wheel size difference will have little or no effect to the ride.
The car on 17's won't ride like a tea-tray down a flight of stairs, whilst the other glides serenely.
The 17's will look better, give a little more directness to the steering and precision to the handling, plus open up some more choices of tyre brand/pattern.
They are however, easier to kerb.
But these aren't trackcars, and unlikely to be driven in such a manner, where vehicle dynamics in extremis, will be paramount.
I wouldn't let this sway me from the car that I like, to the one I'm less keen on, it's not really a deal-breaker, imo.
This job should never be complete - the day I think I've done it all, is the day I resign.
