new rims

I got my rims today and just put them on. I ordered them from Wheelmax...they are Exel TZ-7 17" Gunmetal with Federal SS595 215/45/17 tires. Does anyone know anything about these tires?

The pics aren't that great, it was already getting dark when I took these in my garage. I need to wash my car in the morning and take some better shots smile

Now I don't know if I should start saving up for a body kit or look into dropping my car a bit.

I wouldn't lower till you get your bodykit. After you have your body kit on you can get a better idea of how much you need to drop it.

So far I've only driven about 50 miles on the new tires. I've definitely noticed that the ride is a lot rougher at higher speeds (over 70mph) than the tires I had on the stock 15" rims. I haven't taken any sharp/quick turns yet, so I'm not sure how well they grip the road.
