I have them in 17x7.5 (RPF1's), they appear smaller at first glance, but of course, you see the rim-edge and realize that they just have a thick lip.
On the flip-side, I've noticed since owning them that the smaller diameter opening doesn't make the stock brake rotors look silly, which I guess matters if you're after a 'filled wheel' look and don't want/need or can't afford huge-brakes (me raises hand!). I've seen some very open-pattern 17's and 18's and think 'man, the stock rotors are TINY!'
I personally don't care... got the wheels b/c they're light and relatively inexpensive (and Enkei's been around a while w/generally good reports of quality). I saw them on an Evo at an autox and loved 'em immediately... one of those irrational things I can't justify... I allow myself a few of those once in a while.
To each, their own... have fun, get what you like b/c in the end, you gotta live w/'em
