New wheels and tires snow..

I want your opinion, i was thinking of going with 17 inch rims, but a tire that is 205/55 so i can fit snow chains/bootz but i cannot have any rub at all because the chains will screw anything it touches..

I was thinking 16 inch rims with a 195/55 tire.

Which would not have any rub on my ZX4?

Opinions please!

I am thinking 17, but once again, rub is a factor..

if you get new wheels you could keep the stock ones of put snow tires on there. So in the winter you can just swap them.

i jsut about said keep them in the trunk for weight.. then i went oh yeah FWD. :) anyways... but thats the route id go is just keep some basic wheels and snow tires on the same set, then get your nice tires and wheels in storage. then you can swap them out whenever the weather lets you.... here right now its like 65 degrees and we are expecting more snow later on in the week. its So. Idaho... what do you expect? :)
