first upgrade

My 200 is completely stock--it still has it's UFO's and doesn't have any
signs of the cracking strut tower--it has about 116k and the first owner
used it as the family wagon in the suburbs of NYC, the second owner didn't
drive it much and now it's in NH and I've got the parts ordered from Dale to
build the Bernie Brace

the car has never been tracked and I don't really think I'll use it for that
at all (my cruising all purpose machine that moves)--I hope to eventually
chip the car but I'd rather do something with the handling first
I've been offered a set of 17" x 7.5" rims with an offset of 43mm so I'd
need wheels spacers for proper fit
I love the OE bbs's and they have fairly new tires--koni's would be cheaper
then new tires and rims so I'm leaning that way
any thoughts--pluses--minuses

any input is greatly appreciated,
James Miller
