Right decided to get new alloys for my 2006 mini one, thinking of some

Calibre Vintage Alloy Wheel Details | Mini (BMW) Mini (R50) All Models (2001 - 2006) - Rimstyle.com

16" CALIBRE VINTAGE alloys with 205/50r16 tyres
or
17" Calibre Vintage alloys with 215/40R17 tyres

would rather have the 16" alloys for a few reasons, one there cheaper, i have always liked smaller wheels had a vw lupo with 13x9 alloys on it and liked the stance of it but anyways, if the 17's where the better option why?

Many thanks darren :)

the 16's are lighter and the tyres would have a better ratio of grip to slip, so go with those
