YES, thank you for posting!

My 17's arrived last week as well but my tires have been on back order for few weeks now and they're finally arriving this week. Hope to get my setup mounted on my TiaAg coupe this weekend, but now I at least know how it'll look.

Surprised you were able to run the 17s over a BBK... I coulda swore when they first setup the group buy they warned that e46 BBK may be an issue. I stand corrected!

I'm surprised the 17" wheels aren't lighter. Aren't their 18" about the same weights?
My 19" Volks weigh around 19-lbs. each

But I'm sure the 17" setup is considerably lighter overall, since the tires won't weigh as much per corner.
I picked these up for that very reason, 17's in 255 are much cheaper than my 18's in 235. But in regards to weight, not so much the case b/c the increase in sidewall makes up for it.
