I have always liked these, SSR Competition 18x8.5 are 16.5 lbs. Go to Tire rack and you can see them on your car.

Personally black isn't one of my choices for rims, but those would definetly show some brake pads through them.

You want to take off your brake calipers and paint them? That'd be a lot of work.....wouldn't you have to bleed the brakes when you put them back on....well anyway...once you get them off, just wash them off good in some solvent, dry them off.....primer, paint, clear coat....You know that getting those rims are gonna do two things, 1. Make the brakes you have right now look really small.....2. Tires are gonna break your wallet...oh....and your gonna need to lower it right away....cause 18s are gonna make it look like your ready to go race in the WRC HAHA.....

Also, I am thinkin blue instead of yellow...

Here are 17's

-I have these 17"Hamann look-a-likes ive bookmarked. would i have to buy lowering springs? I really want rims that contrast nicely with black but without haveing to spend a lot on things to allow me to have rims (ie springs, $$tyres).
personall i like the m3 rims but im not spending $650+. belive it or not, those black one above are $500 for 4!

I don't really like that specific wheel in black. If I were you I would sport some Alpina Kopi wheels.

Those hamann look a likes are nice, you could take your car to a shop and see if they will cut your springs for you my neighbor did it to his protege 5, turned out great, till he avoided a car and drove it into a curb at 60.....Now his front right tire is stuck into the back of the fender....whole a-arm bent LOL....17s are cool....thats what I want for now....cause 18s would cost a lot....roll fenders, lowering, tires....
