2012 Focus 17 vs 18 inch Wheels

I want to know which would be better as far as handling goes. I plan on doing a little autocross and want to make sure I get some decent wheels. I'd like to step up to 18s but I'm not sure if there would be any negatives.


If I stick with 17s, is it acceptable to switch to 225/45R17s or 235/45R17s (seems to have closer overall diameter to the stock tires) from the stock 215/50R17s? This way I could get better tire.
