Very nice, mcouldrey, those rims look great on your car!
Question: Why did you go with the 225/45-17 instead of the OEM size 215/50-17?

They look pretty good to me. Good choice of tire size too; that slimmer sidewall looks better (6mm less), and it physically lowers the car, even though it doesn't help the wheel gap.

those seem pretty heavy still for a 17" wheel. The Superleggeras I have for my Contour are only suppose to he 15 lbs for a 17" wheel.

Glad you like them but I really dislike black wheels.

No idea really, it was suggested to me by the wheel gurus, so i didnt argue.

Fair enough, and like prv5004 said, they do have a slightly lower profile.

The splash guards were a good addition, as well. I just installed my rears (to complete the set) and they are well made and accent the car nicely.

In case noone else has said it ...

Very nice wheels and tires. I like the black on red. My baby is Racing Red and these wheels would look great. If you don't mind me asking, where did you buy the wheels and ~how much did they cost with the tires? thanks
