There are lots of things I like about my C3 Aircross, but one thing I'm starting to love is how well the wheels are protected against curbing. Those 17inch "4 Ever" wheels are actually rather gorgeous, so I am determined to look after them. However I recently used the self parking for a tight spot and it completely misjudged the space. There were leaves hanging out over the back corner of the space which perhaps confused it. I ended up with the back wheel jammed up against the curb, which would have been a scraped rim on any of my previous cars. But joy of joys, the tyre sidewalls curved outwards enough to completely protect the wheel. Curbing is such an expensive problem for city drivers, so it's really nice to have one less worry.
Yes, I'm liking that as well. I think the idea of concave alloys should be standard. Any time I parallel park to the kerb I can bring it in as close as I like without having to worry a jot about scratching my wheels. And the other day I had a scrape in a car park when I took a tight turn a bit too tight and rubbed the rubber against the curving kerb, again, no damage to the alloys and only a slight scuff on the tyre.
