hmmm ... most of these 16" wheels look disproportionate.

The CCW wheels look decently proportioned and I think it's because the center section is reading as the diameter and not actual diameter of the lip. Brains circuit 8's (I think) look decent as well for the similar reasons.

Wheels with a planar face (spokes maintain tangency with 'lip') look too large IMO.

As it is with my 15's, I already have a complex concerning the size my brakes.

15's, mild drop, and a pair of Wilwoods FTW.
