my new prelude - advice

Hi guys, after a lot of debating I just bought my first prelude. Its a 1995 2.2 vtec red top engine, green and god damn sexy, imported to the uk in 2000. It came with an apexia stand alone ecu. I have the following plans to do within the next couple months...
Respray (same colour)
Carbon bonnet
Red and chrome engine bay detailing
New rims
Billstein shocks and springs
Rip out back seats, replace front with black suede recaro buckets and 4 point harnesses

:as anybody got any advice on what I can do with the car? I.e vest techniques and best choice of mods. My main concern at the moment is changing the rims as it has come fitted with stupid lil 15 inch rims, I am thinking I wanna upgrade to 17 inch rims and wanna go quite wide, are there any particular rims that suit this car particularly well? Cheers for your help guys, I'm looking forward to any responses

Nice!!! Welcome to the Prelude family. I say keep the stock front seats. They are so clean and sexy. No need to place some aftermarket seats in there unless you are really gonna push some serious HP in her. I say just rewrap the seats.
