Agreed Bali. I've got a set of 119s which will wear my summer tires.
Great wheels, IMHO. I'm happy with my 17s but i wouldn't go bigger than 18s on an non-M.

Fwiw, Sears is selling an AGM Die Hard for $170 (after the discount from an online $25 coupon.)
Given that the street price of a lead acid is over $100, that's probably what I'm going to get.
