[s-cars] SSR Competitions?

The question remains: What wheel to use?  Right now I
have Mille Miglia Cup 1 17x0's with 255/40/17 S-03's.
After lowering the car with Eibachs and Bilsteins, I'm
afraid that I'm going to demolish my rear quarter
panel as the tire sticks out slightly.  What I would
like to do is go with a wheel that is 17x8.5, so I do
not have to spend close to another grand for new
performance tires.  I'm also worried about clearing my
brake kit.  I have the ECS Tuning Stage III, a.k.a.
Big Reds.  What are my wheel options here for still
running the 255's and keeping wheel weight down?
