    Do 10's up front. I have 9.5's and would go bigger.

    my 00 is on 18x8.5(f) and 18x10(r) killers. They fit great. I like the staggered look better.... but it sux that you can't rotate. I know there are quite a few people on the forum running 295 - 315 tires up front.... but I was always under the impression your handling could be adversely affected by this.

    actually, our cars handle better with same size tires allround.
    and you get to be able to rotate, on top of that.

    Well now I don't know what I'm going to do the 18x10's are 6 weeks wait. I don't feel like waiting that long so I might have to pick another wheel.

    have you ever seen issues with stress on the rack or pwr steering pump, from heavier wheels or wheels that extend out furthur than stock. I had issues on my Audi when I put 295/19's up front. It started spitting up steering fluid through the filler cap

    ????

    I was thinking of going 17x11 on all 4, thanks for the input

    depends more on your alignment than the wheels... I've have 17x11 and 18x10.5 on all corners for the last 4 years on stock power steering... including on race rubber
