The TSW Nurburgring Rotary Forged wheels are definitely a great light weight/strong setup. I don't think the wheels are too small, but the gap is definitely large. Have you thought about possibly lowering the vehicle?

I have 17'' too. I choose that because the wheel are light. Only 17 pound. For the gap, I read on this forum that if we do not want horrible ride quality, we cannot go with cheap solution like Eibach or H&R sport spring.

You should read up on the topic some more. There is nothing wrong with going with aftermarket springs, you just need to change your shocks out also. Coils are so overkill for just street riding..

Well said, there's nothing wrong with that size, and they look great. The Kosei's are 17s and I think they look well proportioned

Its the ride height that gives it some irregularity, but thats an easy fix!

I think it looks great as is! Not much for mods personally, but subtle changes to a stock car here and there look nice. This is one of them. Well done.

Nice 4x4, sorry I just had to do it.

I like the wheels, plus the color match but I would definitely go bigger.
