True, moving to Wheels, Tires, Brakes and Suspension...

My guess is you're gonna have a hard time finding a smooth, quiet 18" tire. Just because the 18 takes up so much fender space that you can't get a cushy "comfort-ride" tire, you've gotta get lo-profile and those generally let you feel the road a bit more than the thicker ones.

Agree with Lil. You can never get a good ride with 18" wheels.

nah, as long as the wheels are balanced correctly they'll ride fine. sure you'll feel more of the imperfections in the road with a smaller tire, but generally the ride will not change too much. i dont know what you could fit under a focuz, but if you could a 225/40/18 would be good, if not then a 215/40/18 would be next. they dont have a wide selection in a 215/40 but it's better than 215/35's.
