[s-cars] Wheels: 17 vs 18

I wouldn't get so hung-up on the "recommended" rim width.  The fuel door on my car recommends 245/40/17 as the standard 17" option, and it is quite normal for people to go 1 size wider than original.

FWIW, I am actually looking to put 245/40's on my 7.5" 17s.

I looking at getting new wheels soon. I'm leaning towards 17 inch but the
tire of choice Sumimoto HRZ IIIs only fit an 8" width wheel which isn't a
17" size.

Should I move up to 18 just to fit the tire of choice? What is ride like?
Recall I have Eibach and Bilstein setup, so concerned about the lower
profile. Also Ottawa roads ain't that great.
