GUYS!! help with my sport wheel upgrade

so after weeks of looking i think i got what i want, just need to pull the trigger.

Here are the wheels im getting its the top one on the list.

My stock 2014 sport came with as you know the ugliest 17" rims in the world. With the one above that i will replace it with, it'll be blacked 17" rims.

I have a few questions though. I'm deciding on getting better tires because with the stock firestone le2 that came with it, my front tires spin about 40% of the time on each take off that i do, the thread is close to being done for anyway but the back ones are good. i dont really know what the heck the dealer/previous owner did as to why the front wheels had way less thread than the back ones that look practically new at 18k miles. For those who are using the stock firestone All terrain tires, do you have problems with spinning front wheels while taking off? i might not get the firestone brand but i definitely think almost any all terrain tires would work better than the ones i current have.
Specifically i was looking at this one here.

Wheel Size: 17x8
Bolt Pattern[]: 5x110
Backspace: 5.875 inches
Offset[]: 35 mm
Finish[]: BLACK



With all that being said, is this a good tire/wheel package? everything in terms of specs is good and will work well with my sport?


Also i have questions about the spare tire compartment, right now i have a donut in it, would it be wise to use the donut should i get a flat with this wheel/tire package? or should i also buy another tire for the donut and have it mounted and everything?

This is how it'll look after everything is done, of course with better tires than these in this specific image lolol

Those Focal's look great!! I had a similar set of Enkei Imola's in 18". I switched to another set of mesh type Enkei's and last year to a set of Fast - rotary forged. The Enkei's sold in 1 day, so sometimes a long term reputable brand that manufactures there own stuff is important. Weight is important as well. Depending on the vehicle, if a given wheel weighs 5 lbs heavier, it might feel equivalent to - 20 hp.

Geez I wasn't even thinking about all that, I gotta look at the weight and everything. But I don't think it should be so a big loss of 20hp ontop of the horrible 2.4l lmao
