often the larger rims used to clear the front brake calipers. so if you try to put smaller rims, they might not fit over the calipers and the suspension parts.
or if I can put a positive spin on it: your car has huge brakes
Otherwise I personally would prefer 16" over 17" rims. they are lighter, give better grip and do not bend over NYC potholes as much.
