Listen to this guy lol. 17 inch wheels are very common and tires can be had for much cheaper. Aftermarket steering components will, sometimes, only fit with a 17 inch wheel, or a 16 with very low backspacing so take that into consideration!There is probably some miss communication going on. He may have been telling you with over sized tires that the off set of the factory wheels the tires will rub. Going to a 17 inch wheel might benifit you later down the road if you plan on changing steering components. Some aftermarket stuff you need 17 inch wheels.
