the larger you go, the more loss in performance, ride and acceleration you will suffer. So it's a trade off.

you can put 22's on the car, but it'll handle like crap, it won't accelerate for anything, and you'll have to worst ride you can imagine.

I wouldn't go larger than 17x9.

I don't know if the wheel well is the same size as that of my friend's 94 GT, well now totalled 94 GT, but she had 18x9's and if you turned too far the wheel scraped the wheel well. The car was also lowerd a couple of inches too... (man it sucks going back and changing from present tense to past tense, I miss that car)
