go for lightweight 17 that's lighter than stock rims (some examples: NT-03, TE37, SE37)

by the way, discount tire is having a special on Enkei NT-03

you are probobly going to get 45 or lower series tires......17 & 18's warp like crazy if you hit those nasty potholes that seem to be everywere, make sure their well made...........get 15's or 16's-much better performance, you will leave the line like a slug with 18's....(17's are'nt much better)......[IMG]i/expressions/face-icon-small-smile.gif[/IMG]
