Switched my black coupe over from 18's to 17's recently..here are two pics showing the visual difference.
Ride is markedly improved; what used to be harsh and unpleasant is no long so (ie. Bots dots).
Took a few of my favourite corners @ speed and at the limit handling differences are imperceptible. Break away is still clean and predictable etc..
The 18's were 245/35's up front and I believe 285/30's in the rear. The 17's are 245/45 all around.. Another benefit of this project is now the tyres can be properly rotated..I really despise staggered rims/tyres.
