    I wouldnt get any of those wheels.You should check into some Volks or Racing Hart if you cant afford those get some rotas or something like that.I would think twice about 17s.On a crx they look like 20s.

    even the diffrance between the weights in 15s compared to 16's are amazing. Stick with a light small wheel. You will go through less tires, 15 inch tires are cheaper, will have a better ride, and you will have better acceleration.

    sizes and weights aside, i assume you are going for show. in that case, i think the first ones are the best. they will probably score the most points if you are entering it in shows. (please dont flame me!) :p

    if i had to choose between the ones listed, i like the first ones. but 17's on a crx is insane. look into some rota's. they're right inline with your budget... $450 shipped from ALLJDM. take a look at the sub zero's and the circut 8's, they both have somewhat the same styling as the wheels you were lookin' at. visit http://www.alljdm.com/wheels.html to check 'em out. ALLJDM is a sponsor as well as a sponsor on this site and he carries a very good rep around here.

    <EDIT>by the way... his name is jason.</EDIT>

    :werd: i forgot about rotas. they are a more respected name and the circuit eights look just like mugen's. definitely = more points if you are going for show.
