Default 2wd trucks with 17s

I have a 2012 ram express 2wd. I have srt10 22s on it right now but im wanting to get 17s to reduce my gear ratio and rotating mass for track/street. I wanna see if any guys out there have the same setup or any good looking rims. All the rims i see are ugly 4wd rims etc I like clean simple looking rims like something you would see on a sports car... heres the way the truck looks now. not the best pic but itll do

I wouldn't spend much on them just find something you want at the drag strip.

TBH just bought a set of 17's and wheels. I think they are pro comp or something like that.

There are some nice 17's out there. Not many 17x10s though. I would just put 4.10s in the rear end and call it a day!

17x9 ss/t rims are sweet and are light. off road alloy rims are nice cheap 5 spokes and are around 24-25lbs, maybe a tad less but are only 17x8. Both are good track setups and i personally think they are sweet on the street regardless of one's theme.
