i think i have decided to go with the 17" wheels. i want a mesh-style wheel (flik wasp, hp evo, etc.) can anyone tell me who makes these style wheels in 17" with a 5x112 bolt pattern?!? where can i find them online? i've looked several places, but could only find them in 18" & up...

thanks!!! :thumbup:

baisee00 (sp?) has 17" mesh wheels. I beleive they are Rondells. Wheel exchange sells them. Discount Tire has a Rage Euro that I was looking at getting. They looke like baisee00's and the flik wasps minus the rivets. According to discount they weigh 21 pounds each. Not the lightest but not to heavy. Pretty good price too, especially when you consider you can get them delivered to a Discount Tire store and they will mount and balance (with lifetime balance and rotate) the tires for you at no extra cost as long as you are buying tires from them as well. www.discounttire.com and baisee00's page http://www.clubb5.com/forums/viewtopic.php?t=38324

thanks for the advice! i ended up getting 17" ASA AR1 wheels. the wheels & tires (kumho ecsta 712) arive at the shop today and go on the car tomorrow right after the new control arms, updraded TREs, koni yellows and H&R sports... :D

i can't wait to get back into town on monday to take her for a spin!!! i am so excited about the way the car is going to handle now - i am SO sick of my current floaty, loose suspension & no-grip tires!

Very nice choice. Please post pics. I'm still racking my brain trying to decide on wheels and sizes

The ASA AR1 is one of my favorite wheels.

Adam Bleser has them on his car. Here's a link to him:
