Not too sure about that. 17 offers arguably better performance and economy, especially in snow, and are cheaper as well. I could be enticed to run 18x8 in summer, but I'd have to run 235/40/18 to keep the speedometer happy and make the most of the wheel rim. That's an expensive tire size. I think Star Spec Z1s are about $900 for a set in that size.
