What is the biggest size wheel/rim I can fit?

How big of a wheel have you been able to put on or seen on a Spark?
Chevy Spark's come with 15 inch wheels from the factory without anything bigger as an option.

17's seem to be a size that will work well, but what about 18's?

i think 18's are way too big for this car im sure you'll come across issues with the wheels rubbing especially when turning. seen a spark in person at the auto show and it's wheel wells don't look like they can take a wheel that big.

I think 17s will be a nice size.

17's if you want to run a tire with enough meat.

177s would look nice. is it me, or does the silver rims that come with the LS and 1LT look better and more expensive than the two tone rims on the 2LT?

17s will be the biggest you can go for the front...

if i eyeball it its possible to get 18s in the back but then you run into balance issues...

tire size will be 205/45/17

anything bigger will hit a plate in the front ...

if you check your cars front tires you can see the plate im taking about ....

I guess the 18's are a way big for the rides to be fitting onto such sort of ride. Seen an ignite in individual at the automatic display and it's rim bore holes don't look like they can take a rim that big.

I don't think 18's will work, but I may be wrong. Wouldn't the speedometer and shift points (if auto trans) be incorrect when running such large wheels? Or can the Spark's computer be calibrated by the dealer to account for different wheel/tire sizes?
