if u wan to change to 17" rim, pls do get e light weight rim. Y u wan to change to 17"? for looks? if u consider e price when changing ur tyre is will cost more. Y not just change to a more light weight 16" unless ur car is too powerful to control when doing a launch .

just change to 17" rims with f1 tyre. feel abit heavy compare to 16" even though shop says they r light weight and i feel them by hand a bit lighter compare to others. is there anyway to get back to normal with 17"? how abt change to cf bonnet like bro SJC say?

Bro, the cf bonet of mine is without the bone structure wan, failed LTA. For those with bone structure wan I'm not sure if they weigh the same or not. Maybe some bro here can give u some advise too.

even u change to cf bonnet also not much diff cos ur rim size cum weight is alot more.

not much difference. better handling but slight more noise as 17" profile is definately more tha stock at 195. Me running on 225 X 17. No issue. but fuel went down slightly faster.
