I had the same concern about ride quality when i went from 15s to 17s
on my BMW. However keep in mind that almost all 17s are Z rated and the
compound of the rubber is much softer which in my opinion creates a
smooth ride. My beamer actually rides smoother with the 17s, The stock
rubber was the Michelin energy mxv4 which wear forever but are like rocks
very hard compound. Granted your going to have more road noise but the looks
and handling more than makes up for that. I would go for it. JIM
