I agree with Shawn, the wider rears add to the 2.8's understeer.

But they do LOOK great. Unfortunately, the car is clearly styled to have the wider 17" wheels on it. So most people probably won't regret going with the 17" wheels, but they probably don't make your car handle better.

Depends on your priorities.
