PASTA

I would go with 17 inch, they are not too big or too small. and are fairly worry free when it comes to bumbs in the road. to get a good feel of how ur car will look with rims. go to tirerack.com and check em out. u can see ur car w/ the rims on them! ( u might have been there) remember, if your goin for speed in the future (or now) usually bigger rims weigh more = more rotating mass which slows ya down otherwise, your decision. good luck, hope too see some pics when and if u get em.

pasta,

Best thing to do is to save up your money untill you can start collecting parts. Get all the proper lowering items then look for a set of wheels. Stupid me went and got a loan! I couldn't wait! LOL!

I have 17's now, but will plan on getting two sets after I sell the 17's. I will get a set of 18's and a set of factory 15's w/ race compound tires for that occasional weekend autocross .
