Hi all:

I just got a set of Eibach Pro kit 1.2 " drop that will be installed this next saturday.

Now I am looking for wheels, what do you guys reccomend 17" or 18 " ?

Where I live (San juan PR) we have baddddddd roads,, Currently my passat feels very comfortable.

based on your experiences There is a big difference between 17 and 18 regarding comfort?

Please let me know your sugestions

Bad roads, I would vote 16". They will never bend.

I'd go with 17" as the tires will be cheaper and most likely the 17" rim will weigh less, meaning better gas mileage and better overall handling. But if I saw an 18" rim I really liked, and it did not come in 17", I'd probably go with the 18" one.

What did you finally bought? 17" or 18".
I live in the west coast of the island and have 17" in my Passat and 2 wheels had been repaired. If you get the 18", you will definetively will get the wheels bend.
