Wheel Choices

Can anyone think of a good reason (other than if you wanted a saggy rear) NOT to put 17"s rear and 16"s front?

Some quick tooling in photoshop renders that it would look really agressive, and not watter down your low gears with a large front wheel.

I hope DJPILL dosent mind my using his car for this bit of photoshoppery, but he has the best picture / car in the gallery.

This shows DjPill's R/T with a 16" front wheel, a diference in size of 6%.

Looks odd. They haven't really done that since the 70's and it just seems wrong. Put some nice 18 or 19" rims on.

Uh huh... yeah see here's how it is...

In the Soviet Union, we don't really have a hood. As in, THEE HOOD. So we don't put 19" wheels on cars. However, cehasgr's 18" wheels are the best I've ever seen.

I've been prospecting about those Mille Miglia wheels in 17...

I really don't care for it either. If you want to do something like that, do what spook did, and just use a smaller tire on the front with the same rim size on the front and back. Can't really tell that way, so it looks better.

I would have to agree that it looks like butt, especially on a FWD car.

I'm gonna be puttin' 4 19" rims and tires on in the spring. The tires I got will be 1"-2" smaller in overall diameter than the ones that came on the car (low prof), and therefore, better acceleration!!!
