17" wheels might be too small

After looking very close at the picture of the fiberglass property, I have come to the conclusion the small wheels may be geared for mechanical advantage but the sacrafice in appearance is too significant. Big wheels are much more of the good look of the concept than I first realized. Guessing, they look like 16". Come on guys, please hold on to 18" at minimum. Of course economy is important but to win the market you need an edge, and appearance is that edge that will spark public interest. Use Ulra-caps for extra boost to turn those big wheels.
Go GM go!

Tiny Wheels

Granted I agree that tiny wheels the 15" and the 16" would not be attractive on this car, but lets be reasonable, not everyone wants to drive around with wheels that look like you belong driving around in the "hood".

Wheels should accent the vehicle, not draw you attention away from it so all you see is the wheels. GM will not put little doughnut tires on this car, the deisgners know better than that. Or at least they should.

As far as that car pictured above, to each his own, but around here, you would get laughed right out of town! :eek:
