I've driven these cars with 16, 17 and 18 and much prefer 17. Particularly on the C4.

I've been looking to go with bbs e87 for mine. Same as e88 but 17 inch...I've been chatting with Dave at butzigear abt that for a while. If you want bbs and particularly if you want a custom finish bbs, he is your man....his wheel work is absolutely phenomenal...

Plus I think - only my opinion - that 17 inch wheels look far more appropriate and natural on the car...

As to the rack brace. I think poly rack bushings and a rack brace are a no brainer for all of us..and I install them on all the cars that come to me. Makes a big difference. Anyplace you can take out slop in an otherwise stock 964 makes a huge impact. Every little bit counts.

BTW do you have a picture of a 964 with BBS E87?

No. I've never seen a 964 with e87, since bigger has been better for so many years...for me, I'm just done with wagon wheels and rubber bands...
