Help me choose my next wheels!

I've decided to purchase some 17's. I am going to go with the excel brand because they are the best wheels for the money. Also, which tire sizes are the best for 17's (ones that have the most low profile and ones that go best with our celicas)?

Here are the ones I'm choosing from:

my friend told me to get 215/45/17 for tire size because if I get the other tires it will make my rims look too small. Is that a good tire size to get for 17's?

I've decided to go with number 4. Now I just need to know which tires to get??? Also, do I get the 5x100 pattern or 5x114.3 pattern? I don't know what either one of those means.

5x100, but for tires, you should get 205/40/17.
