suggestion of the rim and wheel size

Hey, guys:
I will have my JP Aero kit installed next week, and I am going to get a new set of the rim and tires as well. Can you guys help me out with which size that i should go for?
Also, I have heard of that I need to do the drop no matter 17" or 18", otherside the gap is still big..is that right?
or will it still look okay to have the stock size(16)?
thanks!!
(the attachment picture is the JP aero kit)

Yeah, you should at least get 18's. 17's will look too small. With a kit on, the gap may not seem as much, but the car would look waaay better with a drop.

drop it with 18's. I dropped with Eibach sportlines, 1.8" front, 2.4 rear.

Check my profile for pics. I haven't scraped anything yet! I don't have a kit yet though.

40mm lowering springs and 8.5x19" rims with 235/35 tyres! I havn't mounted my body kit yet, but here's 2 pics of the car with the springs and wheels mounted:

https://www.celicahobby.com/ubbthreads/thread.f_1869942048_0_collapsed_5__1.html

(8,5x19 with 30 offset all around)

I'm concidering exchanging the springs for bilstein 50mm springs and shocks. But need to get the body kit on first, to see how low the car becomes with the kit on.

And, yes, it's my every day car.
