17's huh.
there the stock rims, 16 tires and not that there ugly or anything, the tires seem too small for the car...my friend has a rsx and the first thing he did was to switch to 18 inch tires but he though the stock tires f-up the handling. he swears it makes all the difference.

dude i have 95 inch rims on my celica and i dropped it 10 inches so the whole bottom of the car drags and makes sparks. Its hard as hell on everthing but it looks nice besides my friends just love it. If you my car gets all screwed up from it I will just get another one.

^^ thanks for sharing wtf

i would say 17's because that is the compromise between ride quality (which 18's don't have), and Performance (which 16's have)
