Wheels/Tires

What wheel size and tire size do you recomend for a 98 honda accord 4 cyl.

I was thinking 17 or 18 in. but wasn't sure if 18s would give me an uncomfortable ride. Thanks.

17" is good for racing
18" is good for show

17" is lighter, 18" might be more stable.

Its gonna be weird if you are used to 17's...even if you make a turn with 18's, you will notice the difference...and 18's will definitely make your car slower.

I wouldn't get any bigger than 17" on accords. I think those type Rs are 17'' and look pretty good.

How much do you think for the wheels, tires, and the installation?
