    if you are staying with the 17s get those
    you should look in to a 15x7 inch wheel with some 205/50s on it

    well im gonna get rid of the 17s and buy stock si wheels whenever i get some extra money. I really hate buying a new set of tires just to run on for a few months but i dont really have much of a choice right now. Ill keep the Si wheels and get a new set maybe next spring

    a set of tires is gonna run you 400-500 bucks, easy.
    you can pick up si's with tires for the same price. look around

    Hit ebay, you can get a set of decent rims with used tires on 'em for $500ish. That'll give you more time to save up for a good set of tires.

    GSR fat 5's have always been a favorite of mine, as are the Si rims..

    p.s. You'll be amazed at how much more peppy that del sol will feel with proper sized rims / tires on it.
