Depends on the wheel; many 17s will not fit over the calipers.

No, not necessarily. The inner barrel diameter and spoke configuration play just as big a part. That's why you really need to test fit something like that before buying.

are you on BBK or stock brakes? 17x7 et45 shouldnt be a problem for stock brakes. iirc stock denver is 17x7.5 ET51

Sparco Assetto Gara is definitely my pick. Especially if you go for that "WRCgolf" look with mudflaps etc.

Color is a bit bold, but does go nice with a white car if you want to be flamboyant ...
