Depends on where you live and what the roads are like. I think I've seen people put 19" rims on their lowered cars, but if you live in an area with poor roads and/or potholes, it gets really expensive replacing a bent rim every few months or so...

I live in NYC and had 17" rims on at one point...I got tired of having the sidewalls of the tires keeping bubbling on me every time I hit a pothole, so I went back to a 16" rim. No problems ever since.

Just make sure you have the proper tire size for whatever rim you decide to get.
