If your not going to use these rims for racing...go 17"
Look in the Member Rides forum and you should find what you are looking for.
To me...Bigger Is Better...however..to each their own.

yea i have heard this before.. but then from other member its better to use small rims with a bigger tire... and i just cant decide... i dont want to lose the rotating mass factor with smaller rims.

15s offer the best options as far as cheap tires, also the rims themselves can be a good deal. You want less rotating mass, and less unsprung weight, they are good things. If you are making a choice between 16 and 17, I would consider the 17s. I run 16x7.5 OZ F1 CUP. I love them, but if I was buying again I would go 15. 16s are nearly impossible to find a true +2 tire, 205/40. I have Kumho 712s, but my next tires will be 215/45 Azenis. I have spacers, and will live with the speedo being off.

Yeah, what he said ;) Look at my sig, I am using 15x7's ATS comp lites with kumho tires. My total cost for this setup was less than $550 mounted and balanced.

:confused: For some reason I am seeing my car in 91DE+T's sig... am still trying to figure out what he is doing with that wrench :confused:

If I were going for just performance then I'd get a set of 15x7 (15's look really good on our cars too.) Personaly, I prefer 16's. They're still light & wide and they look really good - IMO.

If I were you I'd be more worried about what I had to do with the mallet :)
