Default Rota Battles (17") w/Bridgestone S-03s, anyone have?

I'm thinking of getting the Rota Battles wheels, with Bridgestone Potenza S-03s. Wondering if anyone is running either, and how they like them. I'm mainly concerned about fitment... if the 17" Battle wheels with Potenzas are close to the diameter of the stock 16" wheel & tire combo.

Default have them, love them

i have the attacks with s-03's. i can take corners at least 10-20 miles faster (probably faster just have not tried yet) than with stock, and it feels more incontrol than before. the fit is great. only bad thing is the wider tires grab the rutts in the road and pull the car around. but after one week i am used to that, and usually don't even notice it.

i had to break quickly the other night, and it stopped much faster than with the stock tires also.

i would recomend the combo

I got the Rota Tarmacs with the Bridgestone Potenzas. What a combination. Love the look of the wheels and the tires. I can not say enough about the tires on the car. The first 100 hundred miles were hard to get used to. I felt like the car was a bit sluggish and it felt weird. After getting used to them, they feel great. They stick to the road like glue and handle exceptionally in the rain. My buddy tried chirping the tires on these tires and he just couldn't do it.
