I have 19's on mine they were there when I bought it and it rides like crap i was thinking abt 18's or even 17's. And 19 inch tire are quit pricey from what Ive looked at.

My car already has a steeda front suspension kit on it, so it sits slightly lower than stock. Has anyone had any luck with either of these sizes, possibly pictures?
I believe the Foose's are only 8.5" wide so you can't use big brake upgrades with those wheels, at least that's what they told me at Cruzin Concepts when I was shopping last year. Remember that 20's weigh more than 18's, but look nicer because they fill in the wheel wells. I have a 2" drop on mine so it rides like crap on rough roads with either wheel size. I just put a set of 20" Saleen's on my ride, and they weigh a ton ! Here are some pics of the 20" Saleens, and the 18" stockers. Good luck with your decision.

19s arent as common as 20s or 18s thats why tires are more expensive thats why i got 20s over 19s because the wheels made them the same price

Stick with 18s. Anything bigger will ride worse, probably handle worse (much heavier), and cost you more in tires. 18s look pretty good on a S197. IF you're into drag racing though, you may want to consider going smaller than 18s.
