What model IS? I keep hearing about people going really wide....I was told i shouldn't go much wider than 9" as our brakes or other things will get in the way and have to do a lot of modifying.

I'd say go with the Volks out of these two. Prepare to do fender mods!

volks are Very aggresive, ssr's are semi aggresive, pick your poison.

multi-piece SSR wheels are not known to be TPMS compatible unless they were re-drilled for such.

unless that has changed, i'd rather go w/ the volks.

for two-piece volk racing wheels (GT- and SF- series), you use TPMS adapter brackets.

the ones from iForged (http://www.iforged.com/store/product...products_id=11) work very well.

Without rolling the fenders, what size wheel/tire will look good with the IS-F lowering springs (I'm open to other lowering springs.)
