the rims in Pic 2 have a nicer style, too bad they werent even just slightly bigger.

So the 17's would be my pick, but i would have a go at polishing them

Id go with the 17" BA's. They would look a lot smoother on your ride and look classy.

But the 15"s arent bad either. In pic 2 it looks tough as :)
