I would choose an OEM-style wheel. Black looks ghetto

Cheap out on wheels and you'll regret it. (poor balancing/will bend easily/prone to cracks/etc)

VMR makes pretty good wheels. Reasonably light and durable. They start around $800 for a set of 18s.

The wheels he wants are only a few hundred more. I think we're talking CHEAP.

I concur with the above, black wheels look ghetto. Cheap wheels are a bad idea. Stick with stock until you can afford something better than stock, as opposed to something that's worse than stock but just happens to look different.

I would look on your local craigslist for good quality rims in good shape. I scored a set of VMR V10's with tires for a pretty decent deal about a year ago. If you want new and cheap CSL style wheels, try Drag DR-37's.

Take a quick read, this (unsprung weight) also applies to 17" sizing too.
