thinking of giving in and getting seventeen inch rims, but I dont want the speedometer to be off.. Point me in the direction of a good value for something black, with a tire package, and correct tire sizes I will need please. and how bumpy will this get with stock suspension??

To be honest, you speedometer might be more accurate, everytime i pass by radars or others doing the speed limit it seems my forenza with 15's is off by 2mph. like if its a 30mph zone radar shows 28mph, with 17's id feel like it would be more on the money. Just my theory through my forenza experience, could be wrong.

MIne is off by about 6 mph with stock and my air bag light comes on and stays on I noticed when I had my other rims it never came on, they were heavier 15's kinda weird eh?

If you get tire size 205/40-17 there will be no diffrence in speed

I just ordered myself a set of 17s with 215/40-17 which are a little bigger
