Do you guys think it's a good idea? If so, which rims would you take a look at without breaking the bank? Which color would you guys prefer with this color Focus?

Any advice would be welcome, thanks!
My personal opinions:

-17s are a nice size for these cars. That's what I have in the summer and they work even on stock height. Tires are still decent prices too as 17s aren't too large.

-There are tons of choices and it's mainly subjective, so start looking around for ideas. Fifteen52 has nice styles as well as Rotiform, though I don't know what your budget is.

-For SGM, either a darker graphite or lighter silver would work nicely.
