16 is big enough... any bigger and you lose the "sporty" look.
you have to go 205/35/18 if you want to use 18's, assuming you can find that tire.
but that tire is so thin that hitting a bump there is so little cushion bending a rim is a possibility.
i run 215/40/17s and even those are really too-low of a profile.
if you want to run 18's you'll have to go a size larger in diameter then was intended for the vehicle, in which case your mph will be off.
16's are a good wheel for the vehicle, although 17's do look pretty trick as long as you are extra careful in parking lots etc since they basically almost touch the pavement.
ill take pics of my 17's today assuming I can find the battery charger for my camera.
