    another tire size question

    i can't decide whether to order a set of 17x8's or 18x8.5 for my 94. can u guys give me some input on ideal tire sizes for both sets of rims. i want to fill up wheel well but obviously i don't want em to rub. And do you think the 18's
    would look too big on my car. i don't want it looking hideous. thanks

    IMO, 18" will look fine.

    here's my suggestion on both sizes

    17 x 8 +48-50mm offset and 255/45-17 tire
    18 x 8.5 +56mm offset and 255/40-18 tire

    okay i think im going to go ahead and get the 18x8.5's, but when i asked them about the offset they said they have a 35mm that would bolt straight up. i know you said i needed a 56mm, so what kinda problems am i going to run into with only a 35mm offset. they are american racing rogue rims. thanks again
