Wheels: 17" Advanti vs 15" Sparco

Sharing my wheel/tire combo. Both of these sets came with the car:

Black Advanti Storm Black = 17x8 +35 offset 205/40/R17 (square set-up)
Gold Sparco Trofeo = 15x6 195/50R15 16x6.5 205/45R16 (bigger'n the back)

Local roads are fairly beat-up. Suspension is stock, a bit aged but not horribly so.

Ride quality on the Advanti's is rough with regular rubbing from the front-left. I swapped to the Sparcos, the ride quality is significantly better. I don't have to crawl over speed bumps or live in fear of potholes.

Visually I thought I'd prefer the murdered-out look of the Advanti's. But the Sparcos have grown on me. I wouldn't have picked the color, but it works.

What do you think?

The yellow doesn't do anything for me but I am old school and prefer natural aluminum for wheels. I also prefer 15" light wheels reducing unsprung weight, better ride and ability to absorb bad road surfaces.
