Neils, I couldn't find any pics of wide body CMC running 17" Fuch. Quite a few wide body CMC with 15" Fuchs

For a matter of visual reference, these pics are of SOC member in Arizona, with 17" Fuchs on his normal fender Speedster.

Is it just me, but it seems the wheels are too big and the car is on stilts 

If the car is lowered right down around them and tire sizes aren't too outrageous (still around 24-25" diameter) then (I think) it works. And yeah, the wheels themselves are a little large, but if they're completely polished or chromed with no painted accents then they don't draw attention to themselves. Al

Not just you Ray.  I think they are too big for traditional style Speedsters and detract from the vintage 1950s look of the traditional body Speedster.  Low profile tires detract even more.

17" wheels with low profile tires look great on modern day Porsches and I think they look OK on a widebody Speedster.

17" wheels on a Speedster can look okay, depending on the tires chosen.

For example:

At least that's what I hope, as my wheels are on order.  

There is a BIG difference between those Empi 17" wheels and the wheels in your Flickr IM photo.  The spokes on the Empi wheel are much longer and the spokes on the Flickr IM photo are normal size.  To me, that's the problem with the Empi 17" wheels, the spokes are too large.
