Need Opinions on Rims


I normally believe that rims are a very personal purchase, but I think a combination of having so many options is leading to a bit too much second-guessing. So I thought I would ask for board wisdom on these. I am upgrading from 15x7 OEM 10spokes. The car is a 97 328i, currently entirely stock. I am planning a number of mods for this summer and had sort of planned them in this order:

i) upgrade rims and tires, with options on rims including:
ACE Monaco 17x7.5 (38mm offset)
Mille Miglia MM11-2 Anthracite 17x8
OZ Superleggera Tuner Silver 17x8 (40mm offset)
Hamann HMIII 17x8.5

In all cases, the tires are Michelin Pilot Sport A/S 225/45/17

ii) X-brace and RD front stress bar (going on tomorrow, before the wheels)

iii) Bilstein Sport Shocks with HR OEM Sport Springs (most likely next spring unless I take total leave of my senses)

Anyhow, back to the rims. Can you tell me what your thoughts are? I have pics for each one but can't seem to get them posted when I preview.
