    I really like to look of the chroms c6's. 18's look great, i might get 17's up front tho to save some $. Would 18x10 all around be alright? I know 295's will be ok for the rear but will 275's up front be bad? Unfortunately I wouldn't be able to rotate this setup, and not with the staggered wheels either. anyone recommend vredestein?

    I should also be able to sell my current wheels for about $450.

    I like the C6 wheels, I haven't seen them on many TA's yet. I run 18x10 up front and 18x11 in the rear with 275s and 295s. I love that combo. The price difference in 17 and 18 tires is quite a bit so you would save some by going with the 17/18 wheel combo.

    My best friend recently got the Vredesteins and has been real pleased with them. I haven't read anything negative about them yet either.

    the 17/18 combo isnt bad but like said above prepare yourself to spend some cash on those tires, especially the 18s

    I saw a post here of someone running 18x10's on all corners. Go with 18's all around. The staggered look does not suit the f body in my opinion.

    oooo a chick with a T/A. I wish I knew a girl who knows cars and owns an F-bod. Most chicks are too obsessed with make up n shit lol.

    I'm not sure with which kind of set up i'll go with. I like being able to rotate all my tires, buy 18's all around might be too expensive for me. I don't think the staggered looks bad. It all depends on how much i get for my current wheels and my job situation this winter

    +1 for 18"s all around. if you're going to spend the money, do it right. that'd be like buying a 2009 camaro, but opting for the V6.
