I think that style in 18'* would look hot. A perfect size upgrade in chrome will look far better than stock- much more style and attitude than those oem wheels. Here'* a quick photochop tease

i think the HP wheels that look similiar would look better. they have a nice lip and a little diffrent of mesh

alot of the fbody guys i know put them on their cars. nice wheels

thats a sexy photoshop, ty for that.

what would be the advantages/disadvantages of each?? like which is better for performance?

and it appears they only come in 5x114.3?? or am i looking in the wrong place, cuz the enkeis had a perfect 5x115 pattern and a 38 offset :-/ link to a site where i can see specs?

The 18s will give you noticeably better handling than your stock 17s. You may sacrifice the ride feel though, which probably wouldn't be enough to bother you.
