in a 15 you can have any ride you want as long as you pick the right tire. you can get a low rolling resistance tire for good gas mileage. you can get a v rated michelin with a higher load rating for a firm performance ride. or anything in between. a 16 you have almost the same variety but you are down to a 55 series tire so you will pay alittle more. 17 and 18 will cost significantly more and you are down to nearly all performance tires that will not last as long, will get worse gas mileage, put more strain on the suspension components due to higher weight slash rolling resistance, and be more prone to bulges and blowouts if you live in a pot hole laden world in the north country. on a positive note you will be able to take a higher g force into a corner and most people like the look of a bigger wheel. i hope that didnt come across as argumentative, i was just trying to tell the advantages and disadvantages to the ride, the look, and the long term hit to the pocket book.
