Keep 19"s or go to 18"s?

'04 M3 Convert....has the OEM 19"s with a lot of curb rash, but no major damage. Tires are about new. I am considering moving to 18"s to get newer wheels and for a softer quieter ride.......what should I do? Thanks WC

Mein Auto: which day is this?
Do you dislike the ride on 19's? If you do, then I think the move to 18's makes sense.

I don't like the look of the 18s for a DD. they look good on the track. but if you're looking for more comfort thats the way to go

Unless you want to use your car on the track and take advantage of the numerous 18" track tyres stay with the 19". Much better look.
