: : Monday I removed the stock 15" "bottle cap" wheels with 60 series tires and put on my newly aquired 17" "Throwing stars" with 45 series tires...and in this instance Pirelli P210 snow tires.

: How do they look without lowering the car? Does the wheel vs. wheelwell relationship look OK?

Being the same diameter, I think they look fine. When I get home from the holiday's I'd be happy to share a jpg with you.

The one item that does look a bit out of proportion is the front brake rotors(small)...but you have to be looking hard to notice.

Regards,
