18s are fine but can look a little large if you haven\'t lowered the car or have a kit on it. Make sure you get good widths and offsets too

cheers i have a c west front bumper and have skirts. car is on coilovers so can be as low as possible. just think 17 looks a little small sometimes in the big arches. was more of a performance and handling point of view

From my personal view, having tried 17\'s and 18\'s on track on the same car, I preferred 17\'s but the 18\'s did last longer before going off, that is on toyo 888

Thanks jaydee. i am sure the 17 would be a better all round track size. its hard finding the right rim hey. think i will go 18 x9 on the front and 18 x10.5 on the rear. just didnt want it to ride like :censored::censored::censored::censored:.lol

Hey, would you not need any arch work done on the rear and possibly front to get 9&10j on? What are track people running on their cars? Sorry not tryin to hijack.
