The BBS wheels are around $500 a pop for 18s and dont' come in a 17 bigger than 17x8". The offests on the 17" RXII are wrong anyway. The 18"x10" will fit fine with 265s or 275s, which I have on my current stock rims. The SSR wheels are a tad more than $300 per wheel. So, when you think about it, I could get the SSRs and some nice Hoosier track tires for my stock rims for the same total price as the BBS wheels alone.

Looks like I'm convincing myself to go the SSR route, huh? Cheaper intially, cheaper mainenance (tires), 40% lighter, better performance, and almost as good looking.

Thanks for everyone's input and, again, please let me know if anyone has an additional suggestion. If not, I'll probably end up with the SSRs by the end of the week. I promise to post pics as soon as I get them!
