Looking for 17" Wheel to Fit Over HPD Brake Kit

Hi all. I have a HPD CR-Z. As the title suggests, I am looking for a 17" rim to go over my HPD calipers. I prefer using Honda OEM wheels if possible.

The reason I want to know is because IMO, the 18" HPD rims are too wide to use with the winter tires I want (Blizzak/X-Ice/Nokian). With a 17" rim, I can get down to a 205 in width.

I've searched the forum, but the few entries I found don't instill me with the confidence to spend over $1k on wheels that may not fit.

Thanks in advance for any advice you guys can provide.

Ahhh yeah. RSX wheels. Good idea.

How can I know they will fit around my HPD calipers without buying them?
That's probably the way I'll need to go. When I get some time, I'll take a wheel off and get measurements of the HPD calipers and rotors so I know approximately what wheel clearance is required.

Then, maybe some kind soul on ebay or the RSX forum will measure their wheels.

I was hoping someone went through this already so they could share their experience.

By the $470 price tag, you would think the stock 17s would fit over the HPDs.

I'll update when I get the measurements. Might be a few weeks.
