    Staggered or not?

    Im looking into getting either (4) black c6 zo6 18" x 9.5" and 18" x 10.5" with 295's in the back. Or the same set but instead a 19" x 10.5" with 305's out back. I am not lowered but am just curious on what would look/perform best on my car. Ive never seen a staggered set up on a TA in person and was looking for advice from any of you. Maybe 19's are a little much but if not, it looks bad ass and has plenty of tire to aid in my traction issues. Theres about a $75 difference between the two with tires which isnt too bad either. Thanks for your input

    if it was me i would get the 18's and those are good sizes as well. you can put 275s in the front and 295s in the rear with no issues

    I thought the 19's only came 19x10 not 10.5?

    I LOVED the staggered rims on my car. The fronts would barely rub but ony when i made rediculous turns i.e cutting donuts.

    edit.. this was on the TA of course

    Yes I misread that before. I guess Ill probably go with the 18's. Just wasnt sure if the 19's would be overkill as I have never seen them in person

    thats my plan too! the sportlines with hose mod don't leave me much ground clearance so I'm hoping the 19's will give me some clearance but still have the car sitting low on the wheels

    a small part of me wants to play it safe and get the 18's but the other (stuborn, hard headed) side of me is determined to fit 19x12 on the back no matter how I have to do it. wheels that fat on the back = sex. it's been done by a couple people so I know it's possible

    18s would be better for traction. I think 19s are too big

    you're definately right, not to mention wheels that big are going to tear that 10 bolt in half as well lol. I'm still doing it anyways

    I found on eBay staggered set of 20" and 19" c5 z06's lol. I can't possibly see how that would look good

    gotta vote for the 18's. The TA isn't a civic, don't go raising ground clearance via rims

    ^ I can vouch for that.
    Staggered is always better IMO in both width and size. I think 19's in the rear actually look better i just dont like the fact that there heavier. Also, people that are running staggered sized rims doesnt there abs go inop or can they get around it by making up the difference with bigger tires?
