Stock Rims

So I have a 2012 and I'm looking to change to one of the sets that Ford offers for the 2013 year. I have the 16in 5-spoke that are standard on the SE Sport Package and was looking to get the new 17in Silver Machined 10-spoke or the 18in Titanium 5-spoke. My question is this. I know the Titaniums have a reduced turn radius.
How much of an issue would this cause on a non-titanium Focus?
How bad is the road noise when compared to how the 16in rims run?

Also, Does anyone have good pics of an Ingot silver 2013 5-dr with the 17in silver machined rims? All the pics I find on youtube dealer ads or google images are horrible pics.

Ford has the 17in listed at $541 but the 18in listed at $563 not much of a difference considering how much better the 18s look (for me anyways).

I would probably go the craigslist route on whatever i decided. Thanks in advance.
