    Rim Size?

    Would 17x8" wheels look ok on a 98 T/A? Also what the best size of tires to go with on a 17" wheel?

    depends on the offset.
    stock 17 is 17x9" so i think skiny tires look funny.
    as for best size of tire on 17s, it depends on the width of the wheel.

    honestly, i would not go any skinnier than a 9 inch wide wheel, especially for the back. IMO

    and a common tire size for a 17 inch wheel that is about 9 inches wide is a 275/40

    Unless it's a cost issue, I wouldn't go with less than 10.5"-11" on the rear and no less than 9" on the front.

    We've been blessed with the ability to put some really wide wheels and tire under these cars.
    Hell, there's some crazy canuk on here running 11's on the front .

    LOL!!! I like the 11's on all four corners, but 12's might be a bit too much.

    What about 17x8.5 on the front and 17x9.5 on the rear? Also would a 5x120 pattern fit?

    5x120 is BMW.
    5x120.65 is GM
    it'll fit, but they are known to get studs loose... dangerous.
    I'd stay with wheels with proper bolt pattern.
