That is my exact car. What wheels are those? Did you lower the car or is that stock?

Yes, Navin ride comfort will suffer as the sidewalls have less flex. Also consider an increased chance of wheel damage due to striking a curb or pothole at speed.

Performace will change as the final drive ratio changes due to the larger wheels. Higher top speed and slower 0-60 time. Though this may go unnoticed. Remember to recalibrate the speedometer.
