The size of rims as well as the style is purely personal preference. The only concern would be clearance of the wheel well openings.

I think most ppl on here would recommend at most 18s. If you do go to 22s, get ready to feel every bump in the road. Also get ready to constantly be reminded of how small the Riv's brakes look (if you get an open design).

Whatever you do, let us know how it turns out!

22" rims will make your speedy Riv feel like it has lead bottomed boots on.Fat sluggish & clumsy. jmo.

I had 20s on my riv a few years ago and it ended up getting stolen with a tow truck. So make sure you get an alarm as well

Pretty slick. If I were in the car theft biz, I'd probably use a wrecker, too! Also, with your car jacked up in the air, it becomes an easy target for cat converter thieves.

Yep someone saw a wrecker hooking my car up, when I left the restaurant I was in my car was gone. Its pretty common around here. But getting harder for thieves with so many cameras being put up by the city. My car doesnt have a cat anymore but I had a buddy wake up and start his car to find out someone had cut it off in the middle of the night
