Hey there, its been a while.

Im thinking about getting some 17inch alloys for my 04 (technically 05) Optima but have been warned not to go that far buy a few stores because "it may impact your suspention too much". Too me that sounds like a load off puss, the ride my get a little rougher but im sure it wouldnt be that bad... What do you guys think?

I know of a few people that have 17" wheels on their Optima's and they have no issues. Go for it. Take some pics of your Optima if ya get the wheels.

Well.. it IS a bunch of PUSS! DO NOT believe that for one second! You can put on 17" rims if you want.. 'maybe' up to 19".. but 20"??? I don't know about that.. I believe that 20's WOULD affect the suspension. But that's just MY opinion.. I am NOT an installer/seller.
