    since you're asking for opinions:

    i really dont like them. the fact that the spokes look like they come out passed the lip of the wheel just looks extremely odd.

    I have the same opinion. The 9 is to wide of a wheel and will create issues down the road, also the fact that they are 17s and 9" wide makes the tire look so big they appear to be the same size or smaller than stock.. But thats just my opinion, and it could just be the pic.

    dunno, I like it.. but looks like it might rub a little when pushed hard.

    How does it handle? What size tires?

    I think it's a touch on the small side, maybe an 18? But i think its not a bad rim. i think rota makes a similar looking rim that i've always liked.

    Ya know... When I look at that second picture really quickly it looks like a picture of a GT-R. The color red is the same and the rims you have now kind of look like their stock rims.

    I personally like them i think they would look pretty good going down the road as well. Ive always been a fan of the meaty tire look. Im happy for you and your new purchase!
