I have 16" rims on mine with taller sidewall tires. I liked the aggressive look it got, especially with the snow tire treads. Didn't want the odometer to be off, so I kept the same diameter tire.

Same diameter? Didn't that change when you went taller?

Taller tires + smaller rims =same diameter..
If it was taller tires + OEM rim, that would change the odometer

I can't seem to find the website I bought them from, but I got a quote from an exporting company in Japan and bought them from there. IIRC, they were just over $700 including shipping.

Exactly. I used a tire calculator, then verified what Tire Rack recommended for "minus sizing" the tires to a 16" rim.

Honestly doing the research taught me a lot about tires, I was completely ignorant to how sizing worked previously! With the taller sidewall tires I don't notice much of a decrease in grip, but I do think the ride is a little nicer.

Must be nice not to have snow, or the pot holes created from snow plows and freeze/thaw

Lowering's not my thing, but it's neat to see what people do with this car.
