Ah ok, cool :) Mine has the stock 15-inch and I've been considering upgrading to 16-inch or 17-inch, but it will be expensive as I need to buy larger tires too (as you know).
The Venue can handle 17's without any issues, as that's the higher trim package option. After that you'd likely need spacers etc

Thanks Rudlow519, I was actually just looking for the factory size (205 55R17), that would work fine for me. Anything is better than the puny 15" rims/tires that came with my puppy. It's not just looks either - I find the Venue unstable on the highway in any sort of gusty wind; wider/larger rims/tires will definitely provide more stability on the road.

🤔 I put 1 inch spacers on the rear of my old VW Golf and it helped the rear end stability decently.( slightly wider tires than stock as well so it added up) New tires (with different compounds) are another option ofc but better grip= lower fuel mileage slighty, also that would generally mean another set of tires/rims.

Oh yes, cool cool. Well a good part of it is simply bling bling ha ha. The Venue looks real shap with 17-inch rims/tires :) But stability is also a priority. Fuel economy - would be hard to beat it with the small 15-inchers; that said, I've tried a few different brands/treads of 15-inch tires already, and you get quite a range of fuel economy results... as you said, more rubber on the road would mean lower fuel economy. But i'm good with that as I work from home and don't do a ton of daily driving. I'll just watch for a set of 17-inch tires with lower rolling resistance - that's where you gain better gas mileage.
