Default Best wheel/tire size for comfort/daily driver?

I have a Civic coupe with Tein springs, KYB AGXs, Type R sway bar, and 16" Rota wheels. Recently I drive this car more like a grandma and it is still way too stiff over bumps. I have considered going back to the original 14" steelies but they are just so ugly and HX wheels are becoming harder and harder to find. What are my options? I don't wish to revert any suspension parts back to stock.

Go with a higher profile tire, if you can.

How much is a fair price for a set of HX wheels with good rubber? Is $200 a good price?
