    hi. plz don't put these large rims 'coz it would demage ur suspensions and it'll make ur car noisy ur car body'll looze. in high speed the car lost its control due to the air locking and there is no grip. but other side, the acceleration increase due to large diameter and it'll give u a batter average then stock.

    Personally i think putting in a 15 .wheel with a 65 aspect ratio tyre ought to substitute a 17 in. wheel. With a 17 in. wheel you'll have to go for a lower aspect ratio tyre 55, 50 or 45 just so that it fits in the wheel well and does'nt scrape while turning or under load.
