The car has more pep with the 17's. Have you seen d-force empowers? They are 18" which will suit the car, especially if you lower it. While the 710s look good and all, they are NOT lightweight!

thanks for the info. i also wanted to compliment you on your great looking, tastefully modded car. good job.

thanks for the info. do you guys have 18/19" rims with rubber mounted on them? i would like to come by and see if i can fit a rim to the car to gauge how i like the look of the size. i'm still flip-flopping between 18's and 19's.
