The 18s look vastly better. Although I will say the ride quality on the 16s is much better. The 18s are borderline harsh on my 2015. Also, so far I’ve had good luck with no cracked rims in Chicago but I noticed one of my tires was leaking slowly 5-7 psi over the course of a month and found that the part of the rim that connects to the tire stem had corroded. Discount Tire replaced the part but said that once it’s started, the problem will return until eventually when the rim will need replacing. Anyone else had this issue? I’ve heard of it on older cars but not on an 8 year old car before.
