I've had a mooch through the archives but have not managed to find any references to 9x17's.
One thing to bear in mind is that you will probably have to roll the arches to fit them in, not a huge problem to some (me included), but it's another expense and something that other people may not like (like future purchasers if you come to sell)

But to each his own, I'm going to have a further look around the net and see if I can come up with anything.


I'm not totally sure what the best offset would be for yours, but I think it would be worthwhile re-posting just with your question, some of the guys from across the pond will probably know the answer.
I'm running Compomotive CX myself but in 7.5x16", have you tried contact Compmotive themselves?
I emailed them recently about some centre caps and they were very helpful. If you want a quick answer though I would ring them as they take a few days to answer mails :-)
I've included their web address below.
Hope this helps a bit,
