Hard to tell. What would you be wearing, shorts? jeans? are you a tennis shoe type of guy or do you prefer loafers?
Sarcasm aside, you are asking about personal taste, what you find pleasant might not be somene elses taste. This is the test you need to do. Put the wheels on the car, step back, look at them and ask yourself. Do I like them?

cool thanks you guys, if i do go ahead and get them would the car sit lower?
nice crx krix 8)
Nope the 15's will NOT make your car sit lower. AS long as you keep the diameter somewhat the same, you will be find.

Say that you have 205/40/17's on your car, that is VERY close if not the same in diamter to a 15" rim with 205/50's on them.

I'm being anal here, but a 205/40-17 is .39 inches taller than a 205/50-15, which is already .33 inches larger than 185/60-14.

In other words, a 205/40-17 tire makes your speedo read 3.2% low. :p

You're right.
Playing with your tires/rims diamter can throw your speedometer off, but the question was if it would lower the car.

What i do know for sure, last year I took a 17" rim that had a 205/40 tire mounted on it. Layed it down and set a 15" Integra GSR rim on it that had a 205/50 tire mounted on it. The total diameter was nearly identical.

So, NO, it will not lower your car, but will throw your speedometer off a little.
