Alfa Romeo 159 wheel suggestions

Hi Guys

I recently purchased a 159 1.9jtd 150 Lusso in Grey on a 09 plate, and itís come with the 17" alloys (excuse my naivety as Iím not sure on the exact style of the alloy). Iíve looked at upgrading and buying the 18" alloys horshoe or turbine style but Iím not yet ready to part with the best part of £1500 with a good set of tyres included. I think instead Iím going to have them dipped in maybe gloss black or gun metal grey.

I guess my question is has anyone else done something similar on their 159? If so what were the results and did it look good etc. Also i was thinking of changing the tyre size down from the 225, 17, 50's to 225, 17, 45's to emphasise the alloy wheel more.... Would this leave too much of a gap in the wheel arch without lowering the suspension or would that look ok also?

Any advice or opinions are appreciated......
