Got my new rims..

Well I bought new rims today. I got a set of 17" VOXX wheels and wrapped them in 215/45/17's. Now I'm having braking issues. I'm getting extreme vibration when I apply the brakes. Feels almost like warped rotors:(.. I'm Guessing I either need to have my Comp reflashed for this size or I actually have warped rotors?? Does anyone have any thoughts on this? Here's some pics of the wheels on my dirty car LOL...

the new wheels are not compatible

put the original wheels back on or you risk ruining your front end.
