What size wheels for a GTV

Ok i have a GTV Spider on standard 16 in rims and i have a v6 which i recently purchased which is on 18 inch rims with 225-40-18 tyres which i find gives the car much to harsh a ride fine if you are doing trackdays all of the time but no good at all on the uk roads, and i think it makes it very skitty, the car has had uprated springs all round put on it and a complete suspension overhaul which the previous owner paid nearly 1500 (thanks very much it looks superb) for the parts and work. I want to change to a smaller size rim and have a bit more rubber and fancy a set of the tele dial type wheels so my question is will i need spacers with these and do i go for 16 or 17 inch rims.

imho 16 inch teles look a bit lacking. need 17s, but you will pay a premium over the 156 16 inchers.
