Indeed, what to look for in a cymbal?
A general rule is the thicker the cymbal, the higher the pitch. If you're playing a lot of rock music, a thicker cymbal may withstand the loud crashes better than a thinner cymbal (although the latter has more flexibility).
Then, what size ride cymbal?
about 20 inches
The most common diameter for a ride cymbal is about 20 inches (51 cm), but anything from 18 inches (46 cm) to 22 inches (56 cm) is standard. Smaller and thinner cymbals tend to be darker with more shimmer, while larger and thicker cymbals tend to respond better in louder volume situations, and conversely.
Moreover, why are there holes in cymbals?
Unlike regular crash cymbals that don't feature any modifications, cymbals with holes deliver sharper and trashier sounds, plus they and also have a shorter decay time. Cymbals with holes make the perfect effects cymbals.

In addition, can you use a crash cymbal as a ride?
Most Cymbal & Gong crashes function as both, even though they're not labeled crash-rides-- one of my own cymbals is a 17" thin crash that rides well through a decent range of dynamics, but also responds quickly when crashed.
Still, how does cymbal size affect sound?
Larger cymbals generally have more volume, longer sustain and slower response than smaller cymbals. Bigger Cymbals = Increased Volume, Longer Sustain, and Bigger Sound.
Nevertheless, do cymbals wear out?
