New question: What size tire do I need for 17x7.5" wheels to make sure the speedo reads the same?

Old question:

I really want to get rid of these stoopid steel wheels, but I'm having a hard time deciding.

Here's what I don't want:
- Black
- Chrome
- High Polish
- More than 10 spokes
- Thin spokes

So essentially I'm looking for something that looks like it could have come with the car. Classy and not flashy, just nice. Got any suggestions? Probably 5-spoke.

I'd go with black rims on a white car. Even though I'm a fan of flashy things, white on white isn't going to look to spectacular. If your car was black I'd say yea to the white rims. But I say full black. Maybe even a gunmetal.

The best mpg I had was 34.5, the worse was 12.2 lol

Here's a nifty tool that Discount Tire has on their site:
See Wheels on Your Vehicle - Discount Tire
You can see the different wheels on your car. So cool!

^Momo Winter 2

@K.I.A. I just don't like black rims. Sure it looks good on some cars, but too much of the world associates black rims with rice. And I'm trying to stay away from that image as much as possible. And plus, I just want some nice rims, nothing flashy at all.

Another option I might consider is the MB Wheels Twist:

They're a little flashier but still classy enough for me.

I like the MOMO Winter 2, 5 spoke to me just doesn't look substantial enough. (unless it's a split 5 spoke like I have. lol!)

@sje: Where can I get them?!?!?! MUST HAVE

Edit: Okay, maybe a little too rich for me :p

I kind of like the MB Wheels Interlines:

GO GOLD! I love a white car with some sexy gold rims. :) Koup SXR has a set of painted gold rims. They are too sexy.

I plan on going with either the TSW NARDO or TSW VAIRANO..both look excellent and any TSW wheels can be used with our stock TMPS sensors....The image below is a VW with TSW NARDO's....I just think this wheel would look hot on our cars...

I have a 2011 white koup and these are the wheels im thinkin of putting on...
I think this type of 5-spoke design is the way to go! :)
Yeah, I like the split spoke look.

Those are really nice, but also fairly expensive ($176 each)
