After market wheels for 17" tires

Anyone running after market rims on the OEM sized tires for a 2002 S? When I bought my 2002 in August it had original rubber on it with 37K km on it. I rushed out and bought 17" PS2s @ about $1000 before I realized that almost everyone went to 18"rims. Looking to change the rims now and would like to see what others are running. I don't like the looks of 19s or think I'd like the ride in my área.

I have 18 X 8 and 18 X 10 Carrera rims on my 2003 S. If I lived somewhere with roads like Mexico, I'd stick with the 17" rims for the better rim protection and softer ride provided by the higher profile tires. Stick with stock tire sizes (in owner's manual).
