Default Which wheel and tire size

How much of a difference in ride will I notice by using a 16x7 wheel and taller tire instead of a 17x7 with a lower profile tire?

More road noise.
Harder/rougher over the bumps.
Just sold the PT where I had used both. (16 inch were the OEMs for winter)
"Swear" I won't do it to the new Couture!

I would think more sidewall would ride softer and quieter not rougher?

Just to make sure I understand what you're saying. You thought the 16s road rougher than the 17 low pros?
