yeah i say get the Konig Absolutes in 17's
Those are what my wife would like me to put on. I think the other one gives a more Indy/Cart racing look.

I kinda like the Imagines coz they got that F1 look. The 7th gens are made to fit up to 19s. I say go with 17s or even 18s if you can.

I think 18's would be way too heavy.

not really, most 17's are about 20-25lb, so 18's are only going to be like 5lb more.

Aren't forged rims about 30% lighter or something weird like that? Expect 20lb 18s.

Definitely 17s over the 16s. The tire gap won't be as big, and ugly imo :P If you got a lil extra cash...go with some 18s. My boo regrets getting 17s now.
