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.

Don't forget that the 17's are much more susceptible to impact damage from road hazards than a smaller wheel with more tire.
