Default 17" Dilemma

Hey All,

09 MS3 - 5,000 miles

I'd like to go to 17" wheel for less weight and thicker sidewall for more comfort.

I don't want my tires to hold me back at an AutoX, and I want them to not kill me when it snows.

Budget wise I'd like to keep it at ~$200 a wheel and ~$100 a tire


WWYD?

your priorities are wack lol. you cant have the best of both worlds. if your going to buy another set of wheels, buy 17"s with a really comfy passenger tire and then buy sick R comp tires for your stock wheels at the track.

Enkei RPF1 Wheel 17x7.5, 5x114.3

Vivid Racing is where I've seen them the cheapest. Run a 17x7.5 and a 235 width tire and you'd be good, 17x9 costs a bit more if you want a badass look, but the 7.5 is closer to your budget...
