Anytime you increase wheel weight, or mass, you'll increase the amount of power needed to turn them. There are superlight big wheels out there, but I don't know enough about their strength to recommend them. :|

Another downer is that it also takes more braking power to stop the car with bigger wheels. I'd recommend Cobra brakes too. :headbang:

Don't know what you're doing with your car, but you could run the big wheels around town and keep your stockers for playing at the drag strip. :)

The main reasons the factory put the small rims on there were 1) cost and 2) acceleration/braking improvement in the weaker drivelines. They figured if you wanted the really good looking wheels you'd buy the GT or Cobra, I guess. :rolleyes:

I personally really like 17's. They are big enough to give you good handling but light enough not to make your car suck. :D
