Same, if anything I feel that the ride is smoother with 18's on.

Also got eibachs on though so this may have something to do with it ;-)

If left standard you will probably notice a slight increase in harshness due to the lower profile tyre, but as mentioned there's things you can do to counter that.

If 17's are "bumpy enough" then its probably not a good idea for you to be considering 18's.

Plus if you're sticking with Honda alloys, you may well see a rise in fuel consumption.

On the bright side, they will look good, though! :cool:

I've always had 18's on the Civic from the day I bought it .... my mpg is very good compared to my 1.9l Diesel b6 sat... showing 48.9mpg at the mo
