17's for keeping some of the performance, 18's for the look .....


18x8.5 will be fine if you choose your tires wisely.

Yup, what furious said. I really wanted 18's, but I "drive" my car too much.

if your car is lowered, 18''s may rub around corners when you have a lot of weight in your car (4 guys). I know from experience... But I still love them, it just gives an excuse not to give people rides.

17x8.5 in my opinion, 18's seem almost too big... check out hamann rims.
