Wheels are 100% subjective. go on google image search and look at as many combinations of colors you can see what most makes YOU happy, Not some guy on a message board.

I personally think the versa looks good with 16 or 17 but some people like the huge wheel look. but the bigger the wheel the more sacrifice in ride you will feel. bigger wheels are heavier, will have shorter sidewalls, and cost more.

Like I said you'll have to live with them. one thing I can recommend from an engineering standpoint is get the lightest wheel you can afford and like. a lightweight wheel will afford a better ride, better handling, more (effective) power. The Konig daylite is affordable, lightweight, and available in a bunch of colors.



I run Enkei EDR 9's because the price was right and they were "around" but I''m going lighter next time around.

i think heavier wheels increase braking/stopping distance, another reason to go lighter

Correct,
Unsprung Weight effects handling, while rotating mass is much more difficult to Get moving and to stop moving. the rule of thumb is ~1/3 a horsepower per pound of rotating wheel/tire mass.

For example. (all in 17x7")
Enkei WDM is 23.5 Lb each
Enkei RPF-1 is 14.6 Lb Each


8.9 Lb each corner difference, x4 = 35.6 lbs difference. Even being conservative that's the equivalent of loosing 10+ horsepower by choosing the wrong wheel. on a car like the V (which is adequate but not abundant with power) every little bit counts. Plus a cheap set of cheap or factory shocks can work like much more expensive units by requiring them to do much less work.

Those wheels are like $200 a set difference, Most V owners would gladly pay $200 for a device to add 10 horsepower. decrease braking distance, and improve handling.
