    nope no problem here.. just wanna know what the reason/importance of having such a big wheel is, especially when most people would agree that anything beyond 18" is too much.

    because, as an individual, i don't think like most people. conforming to the norm, just isn't me. i don't follow the crowd.

    the reason/importance - easy. it's what i like, regardless of what others think. my car, not theirs.

    in your initial post, you answered your own question:

    it's called personal preference. rather than throw out comments like "You should just buy a bulldozer!", you should say something like "just not my preference". or, don't comment at all.

    no offense to you because i agree to each his own.

    i like the newer cars that are coming out, 05-up mustangs, the new camaro etc with 20s but i dont like my year mustang or f bodies with anything bigger than 18s

    its all about proportion to me

    but like i said earlier, to each his own, everyones eye on proportion (if that matters to u) is different anyway.

    as long as the wheel fits under the car without having to put a lift kit on it then im cool with em!

    hells yeah,thats xactly what i always think when someone decides to preach some ignorant 5hit `bout what size wheels are/are not appropriate on a high performance car.pick up a motor trend..youll be hard pressed to find 1 performance car in their w/ 17` or 18` wheels.so if gm does come back out w/ the trans am in `09 or whenever..i bet youll be pissed to see your little old school wheels will have gotten bigger

    Some of those cars are worth about 10 times more than yours, and were designed schematicley with that size wheel in mind. The cars come equipped with them from factory. Therefore, there is a legitimacy for that size wheel on it.

    so, because i want to put 19" wheels on my car for looks and handling reasoning, there isn't "some legitimacy" in it????

    just because a car is worth 10 times more than mine, doesn't mean i can't improve on mine to handle and look better with the same size wheels.

    Same thing when people use the term "ghey". I expect people to have differing opinions but don't just simply say something is ghey because its something you don't like. I don't see why people get so offended by how other people choose to spend money on their car.

    because they don't agree with it and the internet allows some extra "bravery" to over express themselves.

    mrr23 -- sorry if my comments came across the wrong way, I definitely don't mean to offend you. When I say ghetto it's a figure of speech, I don't mean it literally. Bottom line is, it's your car and if you like the size wheels that's the important thing.

    But did you have to have the neon lights too?

    Do you think a staggered set of 18 in the back and 17 in the front zo6 rims would look good? just looking for some opinions.

    will never lower. just not my thing. i run a suspension/alignment shop, so i know all about it. plus, my race tires wouldn't fit, if i did.
