Get 17's. They are the best blend of looks and performance, and 17" tires are getting much cheaper ...

staggered means wider rims in the back than in the front. ex: 17 x 7.5 in front, 17 x 8.5 in the rear. They're supposed to help reduce oversteer by putting more rubber on the road in the back of the car.

I have BMW style 68 staggered. I like them so far...feels a little firm but I think that might be because of the tires.
