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

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.
