16's are not bad, its just up to you if youve got some in mind buy them, if not wait for 17's.

I always believe in fitting the wheels that suits the age of the car. Seeing EF come out with 15" and optional 16" go with the 16" I had an EF Fairmont and put some EF XR8 16" Mags on it and it look great.

Weekender: Xp Coupe, 302 Windors, C4, Lime green
Currently looking for an 9 inch disc rear end.

My opinion is 17 is really as big as id go on an E series.
Anything bigger just doesnt look right.
