Help, Rim sizing/suspension

Hey guys, i've been searching the net for awhile, anyways here's my story, i baught my 2000 prelude it had lowering springs and 19' wheels. They rubbed a bit, when i went on big bumps or when there was more then 2 people in the car. So i decided to change my suspension to a tanabe coilover kit, its a nice suspension kit, although the car's height is to the max and the tires are rubbin even more. Now what my question is. Is there any possibility that if i change only my two front rims to 18' they won't rub at all? or should i change all four?...
Please help

You think i should go with 17's and get the car lower. My main goal is to be able to drive comfortable. So none of the bull**** of going sideways on speed bumps or having to be careful.. that kind of stuff. I don't wnat to worry about that now. but its a tough call would 18's solve this?

yeah 18s would probally solve the rubbing problem, but they're not exactly comfortable, with 17s you can use a bigger sidewall tire so the car would actually have a smoother ride

Sounds like you want large wheels but I think anything larger than 17s will be more uncomfortbale because of the thin tires. 19s were just too big for the car. Change all four wheels.

When you guys say ride and comfort with 17's my car is pretty confortable to the thin tire? you mean pretty much just go faster over holes and stuff? I think i might go with the 18's but i want to be sure of myself. This is such a hasole. I'm goign to have to sell my 19's and have my car on stands until i get the 18's... :(

i agree w/ everybody else anything bigger than 17s ur ride isnt gonna be as smooth or comfortable, not only in corners but on straight roads. plus 17s are are cheaper!.. and cheaper is ALWAYS a plus!

I say get 16"s but thats me.
17"s are perfectly fine.
18"s still ride like ass, even on STOCK suspension.
