Hi, I'm assuming you have a mk3, if so, i have a zetec s mk3 with 18 inch alloys on it.. feels a little harder ride than say a zetec with 16 inch rims on but not much difference at all (225/40/R18 tyres) many of the facelifted ghia models had 17 inchers on so i cant see ride being that bad at all, another one to consider is the 18s off the jag x type with the split 5 spoke rims, they look a bit different on a mk3 mondeo. Now im assuming here you're wanting ford wheels rather than aftermarket. Whichever ford rims you go with though, they will certainly make your LX look way better.

I would say, go for the 205/50 R17 alloys. Good balance between ride, handling and looks B)
