Only thing I have found, is that you have to watch out on some of these plastic speed bumps, as the bottoms can catch, not enough to rip them off or move them, just enough to make a noise like, I done want to go over them to many times, and that is with 19" wheel, so I would imagine smaller wheeled cars would lower them even more

Can't say I've noticed mine catch on anything.

I also don't think wheel size would make any difference. Yes the wheel diameter is bigger but the tyre profile is lower, so the overall diameter of wheel and tyre is about the same for all wheel sizes, therefore the ride height of the car will also be the same.

Yes I have done that and found that if you approach the ramp at 90o it lessens it.

Smaller wheels have thicker tyres so the rolling diameter remains the same and so does the ride height,

Guesty - I see the 'Jacuar' supplier on Ebay is based in China - how long did they take to arrive?

I have "splash guards" front & rear but feel that it makes driving in rain noisier
