16" or 17"

Now that I have gotten the car on 930 on the road I need to decide what to do for tires.

Here is the choice.

-Stay with the factory 16" fuchs (7's and 8's)
-Go with a set of replica (wheelworks) rsr style fuchs 17" (7.5" and 9" wide) set up for a Carrera
Here is what they look like.
- - Professional wheel dealer.

The factory fuchs are so light and I know they are strong. Also, there are now some good choices from Kuhmo for sticky cheap tires.

The replica fuchs are a little heavier as would one would expect from a larger wheel, but the tire choices are almost endless. Also, the larger tire will weigh more also.

I like the looks of both.

The only reason I'm leaning to the rsr fuchs just because they are 17's and the tires choices are good.

What are your thoughts?
