16'' vs 17'' wheels

Is there any advantage to having the 17'' wheels over the sdt 16'' wheels? I happen to like the looks of the std 16'' better than the 17'' that the dealer has on
all of the 1.8 gas turbos (GLXs) at an additional cost of over $400.

I just put 18's on my bug,and it makes a SERIOUS difference in handling/cornering.With the 16's and no other suspension upgrades the NB feels pretty clumsy.With the right stuff, you can throw that car around very confidently.
