14s, 15s, 16s, 17s, 18s+?

Is there an ideal wheel size to have on an integra in terms of performance? If there is, why?

15's is the right size for turning and straight line. Anything over that the waight effects everything.

well 15's or 16's are nice for integras. 15's if your ALL about performance.

The guys that run integras on tracks usually run lightweight 15's, if it's much bigger than that you'll have a lot of unsprung weight that'll actually slow you down a bit. Not a ton, but it still happens. 14's might be a bit small though, especially if you've got a vtec engine or you're running FI or something.

Appearance-wise, though, you can't beat a set of 16's and a 1.5-2'' drop!

unless you have 400+ hp stay with 16s or smaller. i think 16s are perfect but 15s can look good too.

I def agree with the 16", I got a HELLA nice set from rewsintegra that he was getting rid of and I couldnt be happier. anything larger is gonna start to affect things.

you and everyone else needs to post pics. nothing beats a visual comparison

There's no such thing as a stupid question; just stupid people asking questions.

Well, here is the way I look at it: I LOVE big wheels, I usually will fit the largest wheels I can fit inside the fender without rubbing (sometimes rubbing a little), just look at my Cardomain site and you will see I love wheels. jcwrape - Jason's Custom Garage on CarDomain - Monroe, Georgia car pictures and photos at CarDomain.com
That being said, when I bought the Integra I bought it for the gas milage because I drive 50 miles to work (100 round trip) a day, so I read everything I could on weight and size and performance. I found that 17's look the best, anything bigger is too much on a Integra, 16's are a nice in the middle size and 15's are the bare minimum. Fat Fives and Blades are pretty light weight. I think they weigh right at 16 lbs. each. I bought a set of 16x7.5's that weigh 17.5lbs. each and I went with a smaller tire, just a series smaller.

Once I get the car lowered it will look tight. My best advise for performance, weight and style go with a 16". It will treat you the best. Unless you are not worried about the gas milage and the performance then 17's look the best.
