I have a question...I have a pretty much stock 200SX right now and in the future I'll probably by a new set of wheels and tires. I'm looking at either 15's or 16's, I haven't decided yet. But it seems like whenever I see a pic of someone's B14 after it's gone a wheel upgrade, the ride height looks like it's gotten bigger. I don't think my 200SX looks too tall right now, and it's stock, but I wouldn't mind getting some nicer wheels for it. But when you plus size a wheel does it make the ride height look bigger or is it just me? I'm just curious, thanks.

it may appear bigger, but it isnt. this illusion comes about because the rims are bigger, but the tires are smaller in profile...thus the overall size should be close to the original.

Well,
There are two options:
1) the cars you saw didn't have the proper plus sizing so the overall tire is bigger so it hikes the car up a little.
2) By having fancier rims where you can see through them easier the added air makes the car seem higher since you can see more under it.
