If I do option 1, I save roughly $600 for other stuff I would like to get, like my stripes and front grille.
Option 2 has me with 4 new wheels and tires which is good because I need new tires all around, but I won't be getting anything else.
What to do? Basically, I'm acting like my wife and asking what you guys think

I would go with option 2. I don't think 17s in front 18s out back would look too good. Plus all new rims and tires is always nice, then sell your old ones on craigslist. Plus, I think 18s look better. PLUS Black looks great.
If you plan to go different wheel diameters in front/rear, just be sure to keep the overall diameter of the TIRES the same and will have no ABS sensor issues. Getting this approx. 1" differential, can give you some fits.
Well, I'm glad I waited till today!
AM has a new package deal going on with some of their wheels. Picked up the following:
Staggered Black Bullitt Wheel & Tire Kit - 18x9/10 (05-09)
# (2) 18x9 Black Deep Dish Bullitt Wheels
# (2) 18x10 Black Deep Dish Bullitt Wheels
# (2) Sumitomo High Performance HTR Z II 255/45-18 Tires
# (2) Sumitomo High Performance HTR Z II 275/40-18 Tires
# Free Mounting & Balancing
# Free nitrogen fill
# (20) Chrome Acorn Lug Nuts (79-11 All)
Debated over and over about the 275 for the rear, but after some research concluded at the difference between a 275 and 285 shouldn't be that noticeable. This saved me roughly $300 so I went ahead and picked up the Black Lemans Stripes - 12in (79-11 All) as well
Very nice. You'll be glad you went with 18s instead of 20s when you go to buy new tires. Post some pictures! My mom has a windveil blue 06 too. I'd be interested to see what they look like. Thanks

I'll definitely put up some before and after pics as soon as I get them in and put on! Can't wait!! Hopefully I will receive my wheels/tires and stripes this week sometime. More than likely won't do the install till the weekend though.
