I dont think you can fit 17's with the large brakes in the front (unless tire rack says you can).

Performance should not be an issue, but remember, snow tires handle like garbage in the dry conditions and wet conditions when there is no snow, it's like driving on a sponge. Trust me I've driven on snow tires for about 5 seasons now.
This is not an exaggeration at all.

They really make the car feel like a boat in dry conditions, but in wet, nothing compares. I couldn't spin if I tried.
