Looking at a Certain set of wheels

Alrightey, I have done a little bit of research (still doing some as I write this, waiting for the tabs to finish loading) and I still haven't found a solid enough answer. I'm looking at a set of TSW Valencia wheels (these) in 17x8 +40 form, and in Matte Black of course. My question is this: Will they fit on my 1999 Base? I understand they will at stock height, to an extent. I currently ride on a set of old JIC Magic coilovers that are kinda soft (too soft, actually) and I'm only lowered a little bit (picture for reference, don't mind the Civic steelies they're for winter) and I would absolutely love these wheels on my car, but I don't know how they'll fit. I'm a little tired of mushy sidewalls caused by having to run 205/55-16s (I normally am riding on a minty set of AP1 wheels, so the rear tires are 225/50-16) so I decided to eventually upgrade to 17s and I fell in absolute love with these wheelsi.

Any input? I use my AP1s for daily use and for one autocross track day where the Dunlops they are shod in were incredible, and I want something for street use and to wear around at meets and such. The steelies are staying for winter, they have snow tires!

not 100% sure if your near here, but a lot cheaper. DIY oems...

and yes the larger rim will tighten up your turn ins and cornering. ride will suffer a little.

Re: Looking at a Certain set of wheels

My OEM sawblades are 16", my AP1s are 16", and my 07 Civic steelies are also 16". I want to upgrade to 17".

Re: Looking at a Certain set of wheels

What??? you still have your sawblades? TSW are a good brand,

something about 17" rims that make the price skyrocket... Um, try to stay with the 40+ offset to keep clearances legit, since they don't offer 35 or 30.

That doesn't surprise me. But will those specs fit, with like a 225/40-17 tire?
