Hey you live down the road a bit from me.

I have 18's on mine and they look great, and now that I've become used to the sight 17's look a little weird to me on these cars. The one huge benefit that 17's give you versus 18's is that tires are noticeably cheaper.

Wheels selection is going to be pretty slim if you're looking for half way decent rims in terms of quality. I like to recommend to people that are looking for an inexpensive rim option to check out the Sparco Assetto Gara's. They come in both 17 and 18 inch and about any colour you could ever want. They are also made by OZ and have a German TUV rating meaning they've past testing for quality.

I have the slight more expensive Pro Race 1.2's from Team Dynamics. They are excellent wheels, but they are sort of hard to get in the states and you just need to be lucky and hope they have a set in your bolt pattern.

Since you asked for pictures, here's some:





Their specs are 18x8 on a 40et offset.
