You're safe with 15s or 16s if you're gonna lower it. 17s cause problems when lowering, unless you're not shy to taking the angle grinder to your arches. If you're planning on slamming it you need to make sure the offset is perfect for the rear arches - so the tyres sit just inside them. One of the VXR boys will be able to give you exact figures when they see this.

Loc: woundn`t you like to know
right, you need the alloys to be between et45 and et49, et49 being perfect,if the et is between them then you can lower 60mm on 15 and 16s, with 17s you can go 40mm with out any arch work

also, you need to think ahead, 15s are the best for handling, where as 17s are for looks if you have a big bodykit etc, but if you have a 1.2 etc then the 17s will slow you down as they slow the 1.4 and 1.6s down, 16s are a good all rounder, good at handling and look good,
