im thinking of putting 17" on corsa c ..but what will lose lose over having 15"? will i lose a lot of acceleration? lose torque? increasingly bumpy ride etc everything ....i think et45 will fit..if i have a few ppl in the back are they likely to catch?

i just put some 17s on mine,

i noticed a slack lack in acceleration, but not overly bad,

also noticed it was a bit harder over bumps, but even with just wider tyres it corners shite loads better,

i would recommend getting it lowered too as mine needs it as it looks wrong on 17s and high,

heres a pic of mine

Not sure if theyre what youre looking for but ive got some 17s for sale in the for sale section, theyre practically new and have the perfect offset 49, so no rubbing, loads of room for dropping, full lock etc... take a look if your interested,
