    I have a question regarding the sizes. In the front, i dont have a lot of room. I dont know if i can fit 17's in the front. I might be able to but i am not sure as you can see in the first picture. There is about a 2inch gap


    I dont think ill have a problem in the back. What do u guys suggest. 17's all around or 17's in the front and 18's in the back. Can u show me some pics between polished and chrome wheels of them, if u have them on ur car.

    i always go to tirerack.com and put your car in and it will tell you stock tire size. . . then go to optional sizes and it will tell you what will give you stock height/width and optional height/width with different size rims

    Nice set up, what are you wheel and tire specs? I'm assuming 18x10.5 295/35's for the rear, what are the fronts?

    What profile are those tires? Is it just me or are they like 55 or god forbid 60. HAve to remember that wheel size isn't the singular factor on how much room you have around your tires. It's a combination of Wheel size and Tire Profile. I've seen a T/A with 20's on it and some really low pro tires, looked horrible, but it fit. Also need to consider if your alighned properly. Do you have the same gap between the front of the tire and the rear of the tire?

    well i love polished, i just dont love cleaning them, honestly if your not dedicated to the wheels get chrome, they are a hastle,

    yes it takes lots of polishing and waxing to keep them nice, but imo, when they are nice nothing beats the shine of polished aluminum,

    this would be my 3rd set of polished and not my last, but im a detail freak about my cars,
    just gotta find a good polish and wax to seal them you will be fine,

    but all the winter driving and salt and such would be harsh on your wheels out there in ohio,

    if i was you and lived back east i would say chrome, unless this is your summer cruiser.

    hope that helps

    Well the car has never seen snow or salt and i plan on keeping it that way. I am also meticulous about the car so i usually end up washing it 3 times a week.. so i dont mind having to put some effort into the wheels, it just gives me something else to do. What products do you use on them?
