Exclamation Wheels and Tire's Decision

I have been doing my research on wheels and tires for my car. I work for Discount Tire Company out of Dallas Texas. My car is Laser Blue but its not the SS. I;m having a hard time to find a car that matches the same color of mine and to find what color of wheel I could put on mine and would look good. I have looked at Rota's, Enkie, Drag wheels and a bunch of others. The wheel I have my eyes set on is a Enkie 17x7 4-100 J10 in a flat black. Its not a gloss black. I really dont if it would be worth it to send the wheel get a gloss coat on it or leave it a flat black. http://www.discounttire.com/dtcs/fin...bp=4-100*9-100 Here is a link ot the wheel. The other thing is tires. I know I want to stick with a 225-45-17 cause if I go any wider the tire will wear on the sohulders and not all the way smooth, due to the width of the wheel and tire no matter what I would set the air at. My choices of Tires are Kumho Spt, Kumho Asx or the BFG G-force Sport. I do get a good price on tires for myself. It all really comes dow to the price and comfort of the tire and how long I want the tire to last. I know the BFG will be the best for right but not last long. The Kumho's will give me a good ride and last longer and will be cheaper for me. The ride wont be as good as the BFG. I'm in a toss up. Should I spend $750 for Tires and wheels for Kumho or spend the extra $100 to BFG. What should I do. By the way I found this site from a car that came up to my store in Plano,Texas last week and wanted to see whats up. Let me know what your guy's imput is on this.
