What FT-86 wheel size do you want to see on production version?

There's a lively discussion of wheel sizes in another thread here so thought I'd make a poll to see preferences.

So assuming the FT-86 stays about the same size, what size wheels do you want to see on production version?

For reference, the concept car has 19" wheels

I didn't put dubs in there because if you want that on this car, you should be banned

Agreed. I think 18's are perfect for this car. No matter what it comes with I will put 18's on it. My S came stock with 16's and 18's just fit it so much better and that's how I feel with this car.

The tire spec on 19" were 225/40/19, so if they change to 225/40/17, you have a lot more option to choose from, so I'm voting on 17".

Oh and finally voting system is up. Yay~

i'd personally prefer wider tires and a slightly taller sidewall than what they showed, and come down to 16" (i voted this) or 17" diameter.
maybe 235/40 or 245/40, of course the total diameter would have to be pretty close to the stock size, but I don't mind going a bit under

17s will do for me. 255/40 Non-Stag set up would be perfect

I love all the different ideas people have. Gets me stoked to see people's rides once this thing hits the streets.

235 or 245 would be nice, but I'm not sure how much this thing gonna be pushin'. If they are pushin' around 200, I'll be putting 235 or 245 and the rear and keep the 225 in the front.

225/255 would be great. Plenty of tires to choose from with those sizes.

17" light weights with options for 17" forged light weight wheels weighing in less than 17lbs each.

staggered layout will be nice too but if they do come out with an AWD version then all 4 corners need to have the same sized rubber.

Depends on the size of the wheels wells: if tiny wheels look too puny compared to the wells, then I'll grudgingly go larger. But if I can make it look ok (and it covers the rotors) 15s it is (though I think 17s are more realistic).
