Personally, I think 17s are the best all-around size. Bigger rims are more likely to get bent as you have less "cushion". You could argue that they handle better but the rotational mass will slow down your acceleration. With two equally weighted wheels, the larger diameter one has to travel a further distance (on the outside). Eg. Figure skaters gain speed (spinning) by pulling in their limbs. No mass changes, and energy is still being lost to friction/air resistance (and so on) yet they spin faster.

16s are not as asthetically pleasing in my eyes. You would also have more sidewall making your turns softer (handles worse) but it is a more comfortable ride. They also *generally* take less energy to turn a full 360 degrees (compared to larger rim of same weight and material).

Price varies way too much. You might be able to find a cheap $500 set or a very pricy set like ones made of magnesium.

MSRP for around $1300, I can prolly get you into a set of 17"s for around $1150, but I'd have to double check that.
