well, that would depend on what size rims you want, and how much of an aggresive tire you want...I would go to at least a 20" rim at though

Picking a wheel and tire combo for your vehicle is a hard thing to do. I just went through that and it was tough!

Consider what wheel size you have now. I assume you are running 15's now?

I like a 17" wheel because there are a lot of tire choices out there for them.

Then, pick a tire that meets your general driving needs. Do you spend most of your time on road? Do you do some off roading from time to time or do you need traction tires from time to time?

I like the KMC wheels but there are a LOT of wheels to choose from.

Good luck with your choice!
