I Need Wheels: What Should I Get?

So, I was just up at Goodyear to get an alignment and balance and well... Turns out all 4 wheels are out of round. Blah. So.. I need new wheels! Looking for suggestions. Most of the ones I've liked don't seem to come in the right size or are discontinued.

The guys at the shop were partial to these: http://www.customwheelsexpress.com/c...els-p-470.html so I might do those unless I can find anything super better.

I want to keep my tires so I need 17x7.5-8 and gotta keep it under $550 for the set.

here's the car:


So, what do you all think? The ones I picked or something else?

Playing with the idea of a wider wheel and stickier tires to help put the power down.
