They look great as a 17x9. They have that deep inset look going towards the middle. I have already seen a bit of wear in the middle of the weel dont know if it was the installer or if it was me when i was taking them off. I do know if the wear does continue ill have to get them refinished in a couple of years. Also when i got the wheels they were very light, but when i put the tires on the wheels they got quite a bit heavier and i was expecting them to be really close to the manufacurer weight that way i could save weight and get rid of that unsprung weight that i have on the car. I am using these mostly as a autocross wheel and they will see very little street use. I have however had them on for the street and the improvement in grip going from a 17x7 205/45/17 to a 17x9 235/40/17 is a amazing. The tire that i have on the wheel is showing a bit of stretch however and ill probably have to go to a wider tire to get rid of that. For the car i have increased the amount of space that i will have so i can put larger calipers and rotors.
