18s would be the go... cos if u got 17s you then soon want to go larger...
18s are plenty big enough while still being practical...
possibly illegal.. chech with the rta..

If the cops are pretty strict around your place i'd go the 17's.

I've been defected for 18's twice on my old EB.

Some 17's on early e-series look bigger anyway.

Tyres wise, I pay around $180-$200 for 235-45-17's
and around $220-$245 for 235-40-18
Thats a cash job
You can go a lot lot more expensive but thats about base for semi-decent treads.
