I guess chrome vs. other color is left to one's preference. However I'm not too big on multiple lug pattern wheels IMO they are cheap. Some look okay while others don't. That particular style wheel I not much on but thats just my opinion. Now wheel size you are right on thats exactly the size I would like to put on my car.

As far as looks I'm in the middle on this one. The deciding factor not to keep them... is they rub. So i need more back space. I'm thinking a 17 x 7 x 48mm wheel in gun metal grey

Here is the tire/offset guide.

I think they look ok but the offset is horrible.

they look similar to mine but with 2 extra spokes. Personally, im not too big of a fan. Im a 5 spoke guy. But for now, what i've got will do...

Im also not a big fan of full chome wheels, maybe a lip or something, but i feel its too much having the whole thing chrome

heres mine Motegi MR8 17x7

I think they look good...but chrome is heavy, so if you plan to run at the track, those wont help at all...I would fix that LR center cap too...

Try a gun metal colour. Chrome looks OK even though I don't really like it in general but gun metal would look better.
