16" Wheels

I am thinking about putting 16" wheels and tires on one of my Model A's. Does anyone regret going with the 16" wheels instead of 19" or 21"? Any drawbacks?

Re: 6v Alternator

I am now confused. So, on a positive ground system, would you install the disconnect switch on the + battery terminal cable or the - battery terminal cable.
