Long Range versus Performance Noise


Aug 12, 2018
I have a loaded Y LR Performance on order but my biggest concern in interior wind and road noise. The performance comes with 20" wheels and the regular LR comes with standard 18" wheels or optional 19" wheels. Is it correct to assume that road noise with be greater with 20" wheels than with the 18" or optional 19". I don't have any experience with the noise factor of larger wheels on any vehicle. I own a 2018 M3 and I find it quite loud. Should I cancel or modify the performance or just order a non-performance and keep the one with the least noise using their return policy?
