Re: wheel size question

well, with 18 inch wheels you'll be running thinner sidewalls on the tires, so you'll be getting a bump in handling characteristics but will have a harsher ride due to less tire cushioning. personally i'm not a 5th gen owner but there are plenty of owners rocking 18s that match up well with the body, such as philip here from hondatuning magazine!

Re: wheel size question

There's more to factor in than just rim height. Offset, width and the profile of tires that you're going to have to use.
