I used to have a set of 15" steelies off of my 93 240sx. Oddly some random stranger traded me them for a set of 17" alloys so now my winter and summer wheels are both 17" alloys.

Both sets are a bit undersized because I bought sportier tires. I need to get some taller tires so I can cruise at a bit lower RPM on the highway instead of higher. Tho having your speedo say you're going faster than you are does help save gas by going slower than you mean to, and its saved me from more than a couple of tickets.
