Is there a difference between driving on 17-inch and 16-inch wheels

Is there any difference while driving the Hyundai Creta with 17-inch when compared to the 16-inch wheels?

Do the 17-inch wheels in the Creta SX Dual Tone variant make any difference while driving, compared to the 16-inch ones in the SX version?

AAA - Yes, wheel size has a big impact on ride comfort. The smaller 16-inch wheels come with tyres that have larger sidewalls that act as cushions against sharp edges on the roads, like ruts and potholes. While 17-inch tyres look much better, the shorter sidewalls aren’t as good in filtering out road shocks. So going for a large wheel size, you are usually trading off comfort for the better design and aesthetics they come with.
