Black Centred rims with Chrome lips look so good on White cars, make sure you go for at least 19" tho, heres my XR8 with 20's:

Personally I reckon stick with 17"'s, but it depends on what the rest of the suspension set up in your car is like and the roads you drive on. I'm downgrading back to 17"'s as I found the ride comfort significantly better.

I didn't notice any difference in going from 18's to 20's in ride quality, I'm running 245/30 Tyres too. Doesn't handle quiet as good now tho..
