While 18's look better in my opinion, 17's are the way to go. Best compromise of light weight, tire costs, and wheel protection(larger sidewalls for more cushion against potholes and such) all while looking good.

me no like large sidewalls.. hahahaha thanks!
Then go with 18's. What do you want us to tell you to do? I'm pretty sure you have a pre-conceived notion in your mind with what you want....so just tell us to reinforce that so you can feel good about your purchase.

What do you want more? 17" or 18"? Just tell us so we can tell you what you want to hear.

I got 16"s because I'm cheap. Tires are so much cheaper. And the wheels are lighter. I honestly don't think the 55 profile 16"s are that big either. I just need to lower the car.

Hankook*Ventus V12 evo K110

Set of 4 is $460+shipping(between $50 and $80 or so to ship).

What else you can buy with $500: More mods for you car, lots of trips to the gas station, a very fancy dinner for 2-4, lots of beer/booze, a hooker for a day, the list is endless....
