It's a great choice. And on the other hand, the 18x9.5 RP-F1 gives you a little sharper initial turn-in response from your tire choice...and room for big brakes if that's in your later plans. Assuming performance is the goal, and you don't plan track work or big brakes, then I prefer to keep the weight as low as possible for the torque challenged RX8...and suggest the 17x9 with a high performance tire will make a happy driver.
