Default 17" Weld RTS S71

I'm looking for pics of specifically 17" weld RTS S71 setups. 18s seem to be really popular but they are a bit on the large side for me as far as a 5 spoke design goes. Post em if you got em!

I think 18's look perfect on these cars (as well as 17's). I also think you'll be hard pressed to find many with 17" RTS's as most have gone 18. I love my 18x10.5 RTS's

I have 17s on mine. I didn't want a big rim on it so I could put more tire on it.

your car looks amazing, I assumed you used the part numbers listed by Weld or are they a custom offset?

Thanks! I bought them from Jim's Racing Tires and told him what I wanted to do and he ordered what I needed. I think they are just regular offset though.
