My son just bought a 92 300 CE and wants to put 17" rims and tires. He likes amg rims. Anyone have these, or have any suggestions?

17" new are nearly twice the price of 16", tires applications are less, ride quality less, etc, etc.
I just couldnt justify spending $1500+ on new tires/wheels on a car only worth 5 g's or so. I went ahead and bought some 16" 8 hole wheels/tires from tire rack for $890 shipped and it does very well for the car making it appear that its of a 94-95 model. Some guys talk of buying used on this forum and im not opposed to that as long as they are perfect condition. Do they have to be amg for your son to appreciate them? If you can suggest not spending the extra $, invest it for him and im sure he will be much happier not having amg wheels after the investment pays off and hes already hot after another car a year or two from now. My .02 Good luck, BC[:)]
