Depending on your roads it can be your prerogative.. But 16's should be good with a meaty tire:thumbup:

The roads here are real bad in the winter, soo i wanted alot of sidewall to absorb the potholes & frostheaves
195/60/15's on tireack 17lb. Alum rims. these are my snowtires, they make the car ride much smoother!

16x7 or 16x7.5, 225/50 tire. Great everyday setup. tons of choices, lower prices than other sizes, will ride and grip just fine.

After installing rebuilt and powder coated calipers.



I was running a 17x7 w/ 225/45 now these are 16x7 225/50 and ride a lot less bumpy.

16s and beefy tires rock, they look the best on the SRT IMO, but I have the ACR BBS wheels so... Keep in mind; the tire sidewall makes a big difference too (regardless of tire size).

I like the no nonsense look of 15s , they look all business , no flash .
15x7 rota slips , 225/60/15 BFG g-force sports .

I went with 15s for better tire prices , selection , and best sidewall . Now I just need a another pair of rotas for some drag tires .

Ha I have those same wheels on my car right now for my snows. They were definitely the best bang for the buck on tire rack for the 15" options. Get a lot of people thinking they're evo 8 wheels for some reason lol
