If the cars will be approx 3.5 seconds slower then what's the point of having 18 inch wheels just for aesthetic purpose and the ride looks like being even harsher for the drivers.
Supposedly the change to 18 inch wheels isnt only for aesthetics. I recently read that the amount of flex in the larger sidewall of the 13 inch tire contributes to the dirty air problem that affects following cars.
