    depends on the offset for the rears...........if they are 50mm they will fit

    I have 17x11's on mine and all i had to do was cut half of the bump stop off.

    The ones I'm looking at come in 54, 56 and 58 offset?

    I wouldnt put 10.5 inch wide wheels on the front in a street car. They'll fit in the rear, but as was said above, will likely require some massaging, perhaps in the inner fender and bumpstop, and in some cases rolling the fender lip (on the inside).

    These cars follow every groove in the road with 9.5 inch wheels and 275/40 series tires up front... I dont even want to drive one that has wider tires up front (for street duty)

    Some guys actually run 17x11's on all four corners.......however I wouldnt recommend it. The front will need a lot of modifying for it to be able to turn properly. run 18x10.5 in the back but only 9.5 up front.

    You will be happy with that

    I agree 100% with you on that.

    That's why I kept mentioning for a street car. I've seen it done on autocross/road race cars, but honestly never on a street driven setup.

    i have the black zo6 rims 17x9.5 in the front and 18x10.5 in the rear both with 54 mm offset. i have a buddy that has the 18x10.5 all around and they work great

    Thanks! I'll have to do that then... but how does it look with 17s in the front and 18s in the back? I have stock 16's on now, and was planning originally 17's, but then i saw 18. is there a performance drawback with going with 18 inchers from weight?
