True statement, however choice of tires is huge on this. Getting the cheapest 18inch tires and comparing them to 17inch michelins will obviously have much more road noise, however a good set of 18 inch tires will be loads quieter and more performance oriented than some junker 17 inch tires, or even run flats.

The new 3 series that come with Run flats are bumpy, noisy, and terrible.

Pilots have always been my favorite, though expensive, worth the expense.
Making sure your alignment is on point will help prolong these expensive tires substantially.
