Which wheels?

I had EAP's on my car a while back but replaced them w/ the 16" Sport wheels. I like the wheels but didn't realize how much bigger 17's are. I now have an oppertunity to pick up a set of EAP's for dirt cheap and am thinking about switching back.

So now the question, which wheels do you think flow best w/ my ride:

A) 16" Sport Edition CD




B) EAP's

The EAP's look so much bigger because of the way they are designed with the long thin spokes, and another thing is look at the tire size on the wheels the EAP's have a much thinner tire then the Sport Edition

Thanks for the opinions so far.
You've pretty much confirmed what I was already thinking. If this deal goes through (it seems to good to be true) then I could have EAP's back on this weekend and the sport editions up for sale next week.

We've had argent colored EAP's on our cd silver for years. They have held up well and look good on the car. The only downside is that they are kind of heavy but that's often the cost for durability. Normally I'd recommend getting the lightest quality wheel (and tire) you can find and afford.
