Those are pretty damn nice. Take a photo with the sun behind you, so we can see how the tires fill the wheel wells, and I think you'll get some better reactions. And a 45 degree angle shot so we can see the lip!

They are 17X8.5 and I haven't put my eibach pro kit springs on yet. That should make them fill the wheel wells nicely. I didn't want to go over 17's because of tire cost and the fact that my right foot likes to make them smoke

I like 5 spokes best!

I think the reason why they look 16" as many have guessed, is because sawblades are what we use as a reference many times for what a 16" looks like as far as height. But there is something I noticed: Because of the design on sawblades, the 'contour' going from edge to edge without a break through the center gives sawblades an effect that they are higher than what they really are. Not many rims have the same design, with a single long contour line to get a reference, so as a result, many other 17" rims look like they are the the same size as sawblades.

here are some more pics.... They will look better when those springs go on and all visible hardware under them is painted gloss black. Those SS brake hoses may be visible also....

I have been humming and hawing about those wheels myself. Right now I'm leaning more towards the KZ-B's, but I'd love to see some more pics of your car! I'm tired of photoshopping the KZ-A's onto mine. ;-)
