Well with 18s ONLY (w/o lower springs) the ride is not that much different than the stock ride. It is a little stiffer but with the 2002s higher spring rate it’ll probably won’t be that noticeable. The thing that will noticeably change the ride is putting on lower springs and 18s, together.

The tires I got improved the handling because of its stiffer side-walls and the more aggressive tread pattern. Although be aware that the more aggressive the tread pattern is the more stickier it feels to the road. This can be great for turns but it will also try to grip the rougher, more textured roads on the freeway. So there may be more steering wheel feedback than usual.
