i swap betwen my stock wheel's and some 17x9 cobras for summer / winter and dont notice any thing, the cobras may actualy accel a little faster because i have more ruber on the ground.

it will throw your speedo off a little
i have 18x10s in the rear and 18x9s in the front and my gauge speedo is off from my digi about 1.4mph
so im guessing a little under 1mph if that...

It won't throw off your speedo if you have the right tire size. As long as the overall diameter of the wheel is the same it shouldn't affect the speedo at all.

I had 17x10.5 in back and 17x9 in front and i recently switched to 15inch rims and the ride is soooo much smoother and the acceleration is more reactive. i think the 17s cause it to bog down quite a bit but.. hell the tires on these 15s are tiny.. and I am gonna get some new 17x9s so it obviously isnt THAT big of a difference =]
