How much more uncomfortable are 17inch rims vs 18's??

Hey guys i wanted to know what the ride quality on my 98 Accord V6 is going to be like with 17's vs 18's. the car is lowered in H&R Sport. I'm looking for a nice smooth ride, not to mention the ride to work is a bumpy one. Any recommendations? thanks

i think the 17s will give you a smoother ride. usually bigger rims = more uncomfortable. also...if you get a 50 sidewall tire on 17s...the ride should be really nice. the more sidewall there is...the less you'll feel little bumps.

^^ i'm with that guy. but also your suspension has a lot to do with it. I'm running 17's but I've got the apexi' WS dampers and I've got about 1 1/2 finger gap - it can get rough. I also have the strut bar as well and that really stiffen'd things up. I'm runing 215/45 R17, it's no caddy ride
