Anybody else do this upgrade? To 18inch wheels chrome alloy rims. It feels alot different. Not as fast, more clumsy. Any one else can comment.

I am just not used to 18 inch tires. I think it affects accelleration and handling. Seems a little less responsive. Maybe its just me. The tires look great but the exeperience seems different. Maybe something to do with the electric steering too. I had a Pontiac G6 before this that had the electric steering and there were serious issues with it(took it in 6 times to get fixed). Anyone know where I can get a good deal on 17inch rims for this vehicle?Edited by: aeb10574

Ok. Took it in and they lowered the tire pressure. Was 38 and put down to 34. It made a difference, but still like the 17s better, so am going to put them back on. Anyone know where I can get some Acura rims for the factory 17's since it wasn't an option. Thanks.

Yeah, the big rims do have a much different feel. I remember having a BMW 3 series and putting 18s on it...it really took away from the smooth drive. I think it's just one of the trade offs of rims. You may try getting thicker tires. This takes away from the look somewhat but helps smoothe out the drive...always a trade off..lol
