As can be seen from my picture below, I like smaller wheels due to less weight and the rotational mass of the tire is closer to the wheel hub.

I like your current wheels best out of them as far as design goes. Since you already have 18s on now, why not just go with the 18" OEMs? I don't think you will be happy if you downgrade a size from what you're used to. They both look almost exactly the same anyway.

Oh, if you're packing 15s now, I say go with the 17s. They'll look huge compared to the 15s, weigh less than same model 18s, and have a more comfortable ride. That's just me, I'm mostly a performance over bling guy. But if you like how 18s look, then no doubt get the 18s for your car.

For tire size, I suggest a 225 width tire. It's wider than the stock 6th gen 205 width tires, so you'll have less chance of "curbing" your new wheels, more grip, and not have to worry about rubbing.

Okay here's another question

Will those fit my 6th gen?

okay so i got the rims and i love them already went with the 18"s btw just because it was the same size

they are 18 x 8 +55

with that offset and my car's lowered should i got with 225 still? or 235? afraid of rubbing issues

I wanted to get these too but was told that it won't fit our 6th gen cars because they're too wide for the wheel well. I think they do fit but you will probably have to get new low profile tires.
