Thanks for all the comments. I am kinda surprised of the positive ones so far. I was like "eh, they look okay" when I got them.

I wanted 17" wheels for cheaper tires and because my old 18" tires were getting worn out.

Not really if you mean if weight was a factor.

I had 18" Work Emotion CR kai (cast) in 18 x 7.5 (22 lbs.) and Bridgestone S0-3 tires in 235/40/18 (about 28 lbs.). Total weight of about 50 lbs.

The Rotas and Falkens weight is about 46 lbs.

Steering feels more lighter on my way to work this morning.

First time I ever saw Javwrx's car. Looks good! Did you use hubcentric rings too?

I wouldn't say 10x better though. The AVO STi is 10x better!

From center of axle to bottom edge of fender:

Front: 14"
Rear: 13.5"

They are definitely 17" wheels. When I first put them on they looked small.
