DIY Wheel recommendation / compatibilty for 2003 JCW Cooper 6

Is there a U.S. website anyone can recommend that accurately identifies wheels that are compatible with a 2003 S with JCW? I don't want to buy the wrong rims. I have 205/45/17 non run-flat tires and hope to buy a set of new wheels that are flat black in color...
Thank you!!

There was no factory JCW in 2003 so you have an S with a later JCW engine tuning kit. So your car came with 276mm front brake discs. However even for the S these brakes were stretched so many owners, including me, fitted the JCW brake kit which is the 294mm front discs. These have bright red calipers. Personally to be sure I'd take off a wheel and measure the disc.

Some people are like a Slinky ........ not really good for anything, but you still can't help
but smile when you shove them down the stairs

If you like the wheel style, why don't you just get them refurbished.
Save you a fortune and you know they are right.
