Well today I went out wheel shopping with my dad. We went to a few places and I found the wheel I like. It is made my Motegi Racing, the model is the MR7. I am going to get white 17's with a tire that had a tread width of 205. I have the exact measurements that he said the car needed, and there is some type of conversion kit he has to use to put the wheels on that is like 60 bucks. I got a quote of $1475 at first, then went somewhere else and got a quote for $1100 installed, and with the break calipers painted a flat black, so it wont look dirty with the white rims.

You dont think my car is going to be slower now with these do you guys? If it will be, tell me how much slower, or if I will notice a difference?
