I've been looking for some 17" tires and wheels to replace the factory "salad shooters" and not break the budget.
I found these on Tire Rack.



They are Sport Edition F7 17x7.5 +40, 5x4.25 in silver paint. I also got Sumitomo HTRZIII 235/55zr17 tires too.
They have a $50 mail in rebate on the tires. (Factory size was 215/70r15)







They really make a difference in handling. Initial turn in feels heavier, but she really takes corners now.
Bumps are a little harsher, but not terrible. Overall I'm very happy with them!

Those look really good. The Sumo tires are also excellent.

Now ________ that bad boy!

Thanks guys. Lowering is on my list of future mods. Funny how the list seems to get longer all the time!

Those look great. I was thinking about getting those exact same ones but my funds are non-existant right now. :(

+1 on lowering

Just a quick update. No clearance issues. Wheel fit and finish is great. The speedometer is 1 mph slow now (shows 60-actual speed 61). These are the quietest tires I have ever run. The grip in the corners is amazing. All they do is stick. Also, I got caught out in an afternoon thunderstorm. They ran good, with no hydroplaning at highway speeds. Overall, I love these tires and wheels. I highly recommend.

Thanks guys. I looked at the F2's as well. Darren (ThunderChecken) has them on his car, but they are the 15" ones. Either style looks good on these cars, but there is just something about a 5 spoke wheel.
