I'm thinking about upgrading from 16" to 17" wheels and getting tires to match the stock diameter. How much would this effect ride smootheness and noise?

Ride will probably get a bit more bumpy since you'll have lower profile tires. Nothing that's unbearable though, unless you have some REALLY crappy roads.

Noise depends mostly on the tire.

It will be alot louder and alot rougher, but you'll get used to it. Do yourself a favor and get something good like pilots.

Well, I'd say the roads around here, hell in PA in general, are about as crappy as they come, winters tend to tare them up a bit. I'm hoping to get something desent to wrap the wheels in, not sure how good of tires you can get in the wheel/tire packages on www.speedandstyle.com, atleast at the prices they're posting now. That's where I'm looking at buying from.
