From a performance standpoint, how do these sizes compare and what would you guys recommend? I currently have the stock, heavy 17s and looking for something lighter.

The 17" tire size is 215/45-R17, which gives you a pretty decent selection of performance tires.

But FWIW, I did autocross on the stock 17"s for a couple years and they're fine. If you think your wheels are hindering your performance, maybe try using a better tire rather than dropping $1200 on performance wheels + tires.

Few years ago I picked up the (now discontinued in our 4x108 pattern) TR Motorsport FF10 wheels from Tire Rack. They're 14lb each and make a pretty big difference in handling, even with all season tires. But again, tires will ultimately make more difference than wheel weight.

Thanks for your input guys. Ill probably just powder coat these then. They're peeling bad just like the rest on the road 😞
