Help 17"s or 18"s

i'm thinking of changing my 16" teledials, the thing is seems everyone i talk to who have changed their rims have different views. some say that going to large really affects the handling, making it almost boat like,to the point of one pal who put 18"s on hated them and changed them for 17"s within a week. another said that he hardly noticed the difference going from 16"s to 17"s, no bad thing as i think they handle ok anyway. don't want to put anything too lary on my bella, just that the teledials could do with a refinish and for a bit more than the cost of that i could probably get new wheels. help needed from them that know. thanks

Re: 17"s or 18"s

if theres no body kit present i wouldn't put 18s on... will look too big and out of place, imho go for the 17s..
if its a little bit lowered like the 'veloce' its gonna be just right! you could play a little bit with the tyre height and find what suits u right..

Re: 17"s or 18"s

Yeah I say go with 17" too. IMO go for multispoke ones that go right to the edge, that way it gives off the impression that they are 18"'s anyway.

Just dont kerb them! lol

Multispokes go best with the 156 I think.

Good luck,
