Newbie Question: Why would 17 inch wheels be choice for a 2nd generation integ as opposed to 16 or even 15 inch wheels? ;)
Cause you're a gangsta and wanna be fly with those blin bling rims that make your car slow as shit. :) Seriously tho, the larger the wheel the more rotational mass you have, which eats power. Getting a smaller rim cuts mass, thus improving your power to the ground. Sometimes its been said that having a shorter tire (by running a + sized rim and tire) lowers the amount of sideways shift in the tire, improving traction in the twisties. All trade offs, but go with 15's.
