    Bit of a sweeping statement.

    As is that 17s dont suit them.

    im going to look at a set of wheels tomorrow, they are 17's! i would rather 16's but i do think 17's will help with grip.

    I think you're worrying over nothing. 16s with 205s will be fine.

    16s or 17s on same tyres don't change grip.

    195 or 205 on the same tyre have the same grip too.

    well surely the bigger the wheels the less likely they are to spin? either way, like i said, id rather 16's but these 17s have come up cheap (could probably sell the current ones for the same price if i buy them) so essentially they will cost 0.

    Exactly. So I'd get 16s.

    Coupes have 16s...
