    Maybe. Ride is subjective, so there are different opinions as to what is better or worse. You will need to pay attention to the amount of room available so that your new wheel / tire combination doesn't rub anything.

    Your tire selection is what will affect the ride and noise the most.. not the diameter of the wheel.
