I've currently got the standard 15" alloys on my 96 MX6, with 205/55/R17 87V Pirelli tires.

I'm looking to upgrade to a 17" rim.

A friend of mine is selling his 17" Integra rims, which have the same bolt pattern, and I'm assuming a similar offset (although trying them on will confirm that). They come with nearly brand new Bridgestone Potenza tires. These are specified 205/45/R17 84W.

Rolling diameter of the two is only a small fraction out, so I'm happy with that. Aslo the speed rating goes up from V to W... thats cool too.

Is the lower Load Index a problem?? (from 87 to 84)

the load shouldn't be a problem. I ran into the same thing when i upgraded to 17's and i haven't had a problem. the offset of the tires is 43 if i remember right. And they fit nice in the wheel wells.
