I think it's more appropriate posting this here. With all the handling suspension threads, no one talks about tire/wheel size combo to go along with it. I'm getting tired of the looks part of it and want to upgrade to a better handling setup. I'm putting looks aside. I'm reading so much on the Shine setup and it's sounding more and more promising for me. Has anyone tailored their wheel purchase to compliment the handling department? I own a MK4 GTI 1.8T and thinking about downgrading to 16's if and when I go Shine. Is this a wise choice? I'm looking at 16x7.5's but don't know what tire size would go with the suspension setup. The wheel and tire section is dead on the Vortex.

Re: suspension AND wheel/tire size (hungalicious)

For 16 inch wheels a 225/50R16 keeps the speedo and gearing the same while still improving handling.
