I think the stock 17's is a great looking wheel. They do require some extra work to keep them clean. I think we'll see the day they are sought after. and bring big bucks from those looking to restore originality. I just bought another pristine set to put up.
Stock 17s my winter wheels. They actually handle bettter than the factory 18s!

Good but flower power wheels will always be flower power wheels. Save some cash and get some vmrs! Now if I could just save enough money to replace mine.
My final goeal is to save up for CCW's one day. The wheels I had on there were leaking around the bead and it was going to cost me around the same amount to get them fixed as it was to get the new wheels. These wheels will help me save a lot of money on tires since they came with tires and the tires I had on there only have about 2,000 miles on them, probably less.
But I'm biased, I have stock 17's powder coated matte black, haha
