17" Rims to drag race with?

I am trying to get a set of 17" rims so I can get a bigger sidewall on my tire.

I have a 2SS, stock 20". Does anyone know of any company that makes a 17" wheel that would fit the 2SS?

The only other option I have really heard is change out the calipers, rotors, etc with a fourth gen set, but when not racing would like to keep the factory

I said fudge it. Im swaping out front and rear brakes and Im going to run 18x10.5 z06 wheels out back and 18x9 z06 wheels in the front. Im done with the ghetto drug dealer rims on muscle cars. All four wheels for like $599 through a store I know. They are knock offs, but they are cheap and will work. Hello traction.

Im not too sure on if I would like to run 17s or not all around in this wheel, but the option is there.
