Just before I fork out the money for some new wheels, I have a few questions.
My '97 3 dr Accent isn't lowered (yet) and I've read articles about when pepole have increased their wheel size and the ride, handling etc. suffered. Would that be the case for me, going from 14's to 16's??

Cheers

You are getting lower profile tires so you handling will be better. The only draw back is that the ride quality will decrease verry little. Only cause there is less cushion in the tires.<img src=/images/forums/snitz/thumbup.gif width=25 height=18 border=0>

16 will be perfect for the accent.
