depends on what you're looking for. 17"s with a little drop typically look the best on the focus, and the biggest selection is probably 17"s. at least get 16"s though.

Anything you can take our opinions but it is all on personal preference. I mean you can always switch out if you run into anything later on. View your options and don't jump into anything. I went with photo chopping also to look at different ones I liked. But mistakingly went to a shop in the area and just looked at a magazine and picked them. Not all that happy but......things happen.

I'm planning on going with a set of 16's. My thing is i wanted something a little bigger but not too big since the way i drive id dent or warp the larger sizes to fast....if it helps put it in perspective i bought Faulkens (30k mile tires). Ive had them for 7k and there basically bald. I do a lot of going sideways for fun!
