17's look good and perform better. I've got 17s right now but I also have a set of 18s just waiting for me to put on. Truthfully 18s dont look overly large or anything. It's a plus size from stock. thats it. 19s would be overdoing it.

here's a pic with 17x8.5

I have 17's. Personally I find 16's too middle of the road. They don't look as nice as 17's and are heavier than 15's. Go 17 unless you want bling, in that case you probably bought the wrong car.

18s are starting to get to the point where the tire looks like a rubber band wrapped around the rim. i like some meat showing.

Here is the one that I have. This is an M3 car, not mine. But we got the same wheels. They might not be the best outhere, but I think they look great and don't cost that much compared to other ones outhere.

The model of the wheels are Flik Lex

Here is the link:

then input your vehicle that you have
