Will small wheels improve the ride on my Peugeot 207 CC?

I own a Peugeot 207 CC Roland Garros, which I have owned from new. The car runs on 17-inch wheels with low profile tyres, which can result in a bumpy ride on rural roads. I would like to put some 16 or 15-inch wheels with ordinary tyres. Could you please advise me whether this can be done? And if so, which wheel size would most appropriate?

No problem as long as the front wheels fit around the brakes. The wheel and tyre sizes are: 15-inch alloy wheels with 185/65 R15 tyres or 16” alloy wheels with 195/55 R16 tyres. I would fit the 16" wheels to be sure.

Improves on the 206 CC in every single area. A quite impressive coupe-cabriolet. Best of the CCs this size.
