The reason I ask is that my car came with 17" BBS when I bought it. I have to admit that whilst the car does look good on them on our crappy roads here in the UK I often question whether they're a good choice. The ride is really hard and on uneven surfaces the car gets really 'skittish'. Also, there's so much grip with 245 at the back I reckon you'd have to be going so fast (in the dry) to unstick the back end that a mistake on a public road at that speed could be disasterous....kinda takes away a little of the 'fun' of the car.

I reckon 16" might be a better compromise...I think that's what Darren M had? so he may be better able to tell you what 16" is like?
Hi Guys,
