Now im not really asking for any of you to make the decision for me, but it would be really helpful if some of you who have either one of these setups would like to share some pictures on this thread for me to make a decision. I'm in the process of moving into the appearance mods and im stuck between 17x9 (front) 17x10 (rear) or 18x9 (front) 18x10 (rear). Let me in on your thoughts, regrets and pain (if any).



Thank you
:D

I feel like 18's look a tad better but tires are much cheaper on 17's. Either way u go it will look good.

couldnt have said it any better myself :D

i've had both.... loved both.... but if you plan on running deep dish or anything wide in the rear, you might want to check some prices on tires before you make your decision ;)

Seems like you have the exact same setup I'm looking for. That or the fr500's. What size tire did you go with for the front and rear?

The price of the tire doesn't concern me as much as comfort or ride harshness. I guess my current suspension setup should be sufficient enough to handle it. I really need to see pictures from members to make a decision. The pictures on AM aren't categorized correctly.

ok you said that you dont care about how much the tires are so it seems like you've already made up your decision. Go with 18's. they will give you the Best look. 18's will give you better ride quality and a 2-5MPH higher top speed. WHOOO.

so what is the price differences on the tires size. I run 245/45/zr18 all around and they are $140 each (to damn much for someone with a summer job lol). What is the prices for the same tire to fit a 17?

18's it is! seems like the larger rim and tire size seem to fill in the gap. Thank you all!

I have to say that your combination looks great! With my mach being about .5 lower might make a difference. What tire size are you running FOUR POINT SIX?

Shocker, your car is gorgeous. :yes


And I like the 18 look, to the OP.

Shocker has a nice ride indeed. Bobbo! I love the stance on that black GT. My Black stang brings the estrogen out of the women i meet!...lol
