If you have some money burning a hole in your pocket, then sure, wheels can help it look 'better'. If you want to improve the performance get ready to spend some serious money.
I generally get a set of wheels when i get snow tires. You could go that route.
Thanks for the suggestion, but I don't think I will be needing snow tires in San Diego.
But you are right, I wouldn't really want to lose MPG, I didn't really think of that. Maybe I can look at some 16's that are more up my alley than the ones that it came with.
