    They're the same size wheels and tires as stock on the Si. 17x7, 215/45-17.

    that odd rear window slope and trunk (side view) really make that rear wheel look small. Not sayin it looks bad, just something i noticed.

    nice wheels, btw! :thumbsup:

    can you see the front/hood of the car from where you are positioned, even if you poke your head up and peek foward? I've been told that front end visibility sucks. Although im used to being able to see my hood which may lead to why i think its odd...

    man you could probably put 20s on that and it would look sic as hell...just as long as you lower it while you are at it. but since you probably dont like 20s, the 17s look nice...small but nice.

    No lie, the front end is short and pretty sloped, so you pretty much can't see the hood from the driver's seat at all. I got used to it.

    Yeah, 20s are a bit too big for me. I went with these wheels and tires because I wanted to keep the stock tire diameter.
