upgrading to 17 will be fine but you will have to be a bit more careful over the bumps and the potholes.

Aha, this thread means that you have decided to keep the V6 . Good choice. No problems with a 17" upgrade as long as you don't mind the stiffer ride quality. Have a look at Iraghava's excel sheet for information (ARTICLE: Choosing The Right Set Of Tyres for your Car) on recommended upsizes.

If at all you wish to switch to 17" you can opt for 225/50 R17.
