I run 18" with my winter tires and 20" with my summer tires. The 18" wheels do offer a slightly softer ride, but I still prefer the look of the 20" wheels. It's really a matter of personal preference.

Yes, there is a slight improvement in comfort with 18" wheels, but a HUGE improvement in performance, stability, cornering , braking, ...looks, with the 20" wheels.

Putting safety first, i would go for 20" in a second. The comfort of the 18"comes with one MAJOR downside. At least for me. Tire wall side roll. The increased side wall of an 18" increases the car's bodyroll when cornering. Even at low speeds.

But, yet again, i have a sporty manner of driving even around the city, so 20" on 275.40.20 is my choice.

I use 18 in the winter with winter snows and 20 in the summer with summer high performance tires.
