Default New wheel/tire package for my 08...what should I get?

Just sick of trying to do all the thinking myself...so I'm opening the question up to everyone. My car is dark grey metallic and I've had Rota g-forces on it already. I'm thinking I wanna stick with a dark wheel something under $150 a rim and under $100 a tire for summer performance tires. Have at it.

This is the best I could do in a hurry from Tirerack. Right on budget.

Wheels: 17X7.5 Kazera KZ-K with red stripe/19.0 lbs. ($129 ea.) OK if you like Rota Attack style. Much heavier than the Attacks, though.

Tires: 225 45R17 Kumho Ecsta XS. 23 lbs. Top-line Extreme Performance Summer tire. A couple of MX-5 Miata forum guys have driven these and RT-615s and say XS is easily better. I like the XS. ($121 ea.)

Total tires + wheels: $1000.

The Rota DPT in 18x8.5 +48 Matte Steel Grey or also the G-Force in 18x8.5 +48 Hyper Silver (not currently on your list) would be my personal recommendation. These colors look great on DGM and will make for a nice clean/classy look.

Here are examples of both wheel for those that want to give photoshop a try

DPT 18x8.5 Matte Steel Grey


G-Force 18x8.5 Hyper Silver
