1st pic is of the 15's and the second is the 17's. Whats the best size rim to go with? I don't want to trhow the car off balance. I personally like the 15's better but would they look too small?

Considering the stock size is 15 it's not too small.

Neck's car (twokexlv6coupe) looked hot with the 15 SE rims sitting high up in the guards, and Shagz car looks hot with the 17s high up in the guards. It's all about how YOU want it to look mate.

if you slam the car it would compliment the 15 inch rims and it would look bigger than stock height

i can only pull off 15's cuz mine is slammed.
i've had 17's.... they're too much of a PITA.


16's are the PERFECT compromise between looks, handling, and comfort.

If I were to get 16's or 15's and then drop it 1-2 inches with springs would I run into problems early with my oem struts?

inspect your struts first for abnormalities

Are the 17's (the second pic up top) good for 600? good tires, no rim damage.

Search button is your friend

Recommended Tire size & Offsets!

I think 15" with wide tires is the way to go.

I have 16's on mine and they look great. They are almost like a OEM style rim too (obv not prelude OEM but an OEM style). M1st4's rims look incredible for 15's, but his car is lowered too.

Take a look around in the members rides section and you can kinda compare and contrast in there.

Yup, 16s are the perfect size IMO.

16's are OEM 5th gen's I believe and I also think they're the perfect size but 15's have more air cushion and give a better ride.
