Default MY02 RS Owners: What's the best rim+tire combo for MY02 RS?

Thinking of upgrade my wheels:

for the rim: I prefer 17" and lightweight
for the tire: I'm afraid 215 is making the car slow?

Anyone please recommend ?

Post your pics !!

Any of the wheels the WRX's have will also work as they have the same body style and suspension. ( the wrx's is a little tighter though)

The WRX suspension is different, even though the roll-centers are the same. It has different shocks and springs when compared to the RS.
