Question 17" or 18" what color

Hi i would like to know what would be better between the two. I'm afraid 18" will make my car look too high and have big gap between the tire and the car.
I have a 06 Zx4 Se Gtx.

I would also like to know what colors would look best in your opinion for a CD silver car. i was thinking of black and chrome. But any suggestion would be appreciated.

Gtx?? not sure what edition that is, but anyways, i would go w/ 17's, there are more tire options for sure, and it won't make ur car look like a ricer, just tastefull!!

No to 18's and no to chrome. To heavy. And putting on bigger wheels is actually detrimental to performance. Black is sick on CD silver but I think matching silver wheels would look sicker than anything.

17's will be a lot less to worry about. Check out the gallery for color ideas.

Yup, 17"s. Unless You're into that 'Durrty Souf' thing. Black would look good, but really the choice is Yours. Don't listen to Us, We're all CRAZY!!!

Some lightweight 16's would be my first choice, but admittedly, they're hard to find. Dark gray (aka argent) looks good on silver as well.
