Default 16s with runflats vs 18s withOUT runflats

Hi fellow MC enthusiasts

I'm wondering if anyone here has gone from 16" wheels with runflats to 18" wheels withOUT runflats?

I picked up a used MCS in January and it came with 16s and I'm not digging the ride with those runflats... AND I'm NOT digging the 16s at all (previous owner was an old lady and I think she must have opted to go with the 16s lol), I have a chance to buy a set of used JCW 18s locally and they have Pirelli PZERO tires, which I believe aren't runflats... so, the question is... will the ride be about the same? Worse? Better?

thanks in advance for any advice/input
