Hello
The Lexus CT200h comes in Spain with three possible wheel size, 15, 16 or 17 inches.
Apart from aesthetics, does the wheel size matter for the performance of the car?
The funny thing is that if you want darkened windows in the back, then Lexus Spain only sells it with 17" wheels.

In the Netherlands its the same.....dark windows with 17".
Little bit harder ride than the 15" but thats the way i like it.....my personal thing.

I am sure if you ask the salesman if the take the 17" and you want 15 or 16" he is glad to make that deal.

Just test drive the different wheels. And decide.

In the US we only get 17" rims on either base or premium models.

You are correct for this car, which is not going to be easily modified performance wise and therefore will not need bigger brakes and a larger diameter rim to accommodate them rims size is purely aesthetic.

Although manufacturers in general are heading to larger rim diameters.

Although I find it hard to visualize a 15" rim on any car today:eek::eek:

I would say 17" is preferred on the CT
