17" for Aveo is an overkill, i think. Think of your future tyre change as u know 17" tyres are costly. You may have to resort to cheapo tyres and regret later. Check with bro Bow..

Yup! 17" for our rides whether it's Aveo or Optra is an overkill! There are many things that I'm enjoying now or rather the subtle differences between the 17" and the 15" setup. My car is much more lighter off its' rubber.

The max I would recommend would be 16".

Bro SS69, the Yoko with 90% thread for $500 what model is that? If they give you the C drive or the db Aspect, I think you might as well forget about it unless its' the S-Drive range. My 2 cents.

Well, the rims sort of grows on you. Beginning to like the deep dish rims actually. The Goodyear tyres ain't that bad too but still too early to make an assessment. Definitely quieter than the Neutons but then all new tyres are quiet initially.
