Going to 17" from 16" is not going to improve your ride quality. I have similar issues with our roads as they all suck. My final decision has been to get through the winter, then upgrade to a good coilover to be able to set damping for where I plan to drive. Coilovers worked very well on a previous car so it stands to reason that it should work for this one too.
