18 Inch Wheels Too Much Or?

looking at eventually getting new wheels, thinking about these :

Enkei Wheels - Tuning Series - KOJIN

would 18's be overkill?

First Car: 2007 Cobalt LS [SOLD]
Current Car: 2009 Cobalt SS Sedan

The stock wheel size for the SS/TC is 18", so you wouldn't have a problem running that size. There are a few other things to consider though like bolt pattern, back spacing, centric rings, etc.

That's part of the reason I still run with my stock 15" steelies. They can take a beating. And if they get bent, it's nothing a ball peen hammer can't fix lol
