I have 18" and because of a higher sidewall the diameter of the wheel is 2 centimeter bigger than the original diameter. The car is lowered 3 centimeters. Never had any problems.

17's ok 18's better 19's daaaammmmm 18's are ok on a gts with a blitz fron and 2" drop try to get a 38mm to 40mm offset so it wont sit to far in on the car and run 224/35 18 are the best size for the car and almost a perfect match for stock size. grin

The higher the offset, the farther it will sit in. Depending on whether you have a gt or gts the stock wheel are around 38mm, but you will have to compensate some for the added width of the larger wheels. Mine are 18x7.5, 35mm offset. I want to add 5mm h&r spacers to push them even closer to the rear wells, fronts o.k.
