Got the new rims on. Went with Continental ExtremeContact Sport tires... it is a total ripoff of the Pilot Super Sport that costs about $50 less a tire. Very, very impressed with the tires. I had thought going up an inch in rim size, from all season tires to max performance summer tires, things would be much louder and rougher riding, but the ride is actually smoother, quieter, and more controlled. The reverse mounted LMs look fucking incredible and are the perfect offset for this car. I kind of wish I had non-staggered rims, or could have gotten a 9" front/10" rear set. The 9" rears have a different, flatter face and much more lip than the 8". The center caps didn't fit in the front! Stock dust cover is too big. Trying to source some new ones from Japan so I can get the caps on front & rear... the BBS caps are too sexy to leave off. Going to have to lower the car a bit more now, though. I went from 225/50R16 fronts to 215/45R17 and they still rub so I need stiffer springs anyway. Car needs a wash so bad... finally got the parts in to fix the windows so they roll up again. It is starting to show some rust in a few spots so I'll have to take care of that soon too. I want to just bolt on a bunch of go-fast parts, but I think a restoration and full paint job would be a better move at this point.
