Part of the increase in wheel sizes is also attributable to cars getting heavier and needing larger brakes to deal with the extra mass. The extra weight certainly moved us out of the 15" and 16" rims to make way for larger brakes, but then designers started seeing wheels as ways to express themselves and continued increasing the size beyond what's really required.
