I'm not one for big flashy rims, I personally perfer performance. But I was recently given a great deal on some larger rims. What is the largest size rim that can go on without well-rub on an o6 se w/ sap? IF I do go big, I might just turn the street focus into a show car.

Stock 16s for me. Probably will stay that way.

I would stick with 17's personally to maintain a decent ride quality and to prevent rubbing depending on the offset if you plan on lowering your car. You can go 18's, but I would stick to 17 imch wheels.

I can't vote for two? 16s for the track and 17s for the street.

Stock for now but am looking for 17's in the near future. You'll need to be carefull of wheel speed if you have ABS I believe. a good site it 1010tire.com it has a good calculator to help with tire size and overall height issues.

Does anyone with a zx3 and a 2 inch drop with 17" wheels notice any rubbing at all? The reason I am asking is because I have recently been hearing funny noises from my back wheels almost like a grinding type sound, but in steady spurts everytime the wheel rotates... kinda like a: Bump...Bump...Bump...Bump...Bump...Bump, not really constant grinding just in little spurts. lol Does this makes sense at all?! [dunno]

Can you say "Bell Curve"?

17's really are a great compromise between all factors.

What is the largest rim avail. with out any wheel rub? 19's?

there is a focus in our town rolling on 20's and a big ol dub 20 logo on the side. of course he has no tire and mind you his ride looks really stupid. but i would say 19's in teh right offset (look a dreamsetter he has 19's) anything bigger than 19 is insane though you are literally rolling on rubber bands.
