    i think that you should go 19x8.5 up front and 19x10 rears. It looks great as you can see form my avitar because that is what i've been running for a while and it looks kick ass.

    18x9.5 on all corners so you can rotate.

    Out of the choices you named I voted '18x9.5 all the way around'.

    The ability to rotate the tires is worth it imo.

    I voted for the 18x9.5 front and 19x9.5 rear. But the bottom line is whether or not you are gonna rotate. If your car is a daily driver, then 18x9.5 all the way around. If just for show and weekends then not a big deal on rotation. Just my opinion.

    I know im losing on performance from going with 18's over 17, but im gonna be mainly a cruiser know what I mean? Wont ever be fast enough, not at my age, and with my house being built! lol, will 19 be that much slower than 18 rich? would 18 all around handle better? Or is having a smaller front better? Thanks

    It's all about the weight factor mainly. More weight takes longer to get going and longer to stop as well. Not a huge deal for you though. Wider is better for handling/road racing. Ultimate wheels like Fikse get almost $1k each wheel to have light weight wheels.

    When you start removing all the seats for just one aluminum......then you can get serious about the weight of your car.

    I have a stagered setup on my TA and when it was just a bolt on car, i couldn't tell a difference from my 17's at all. They ride and handle great. As for the rotaion issue, i don't drive my car all that musch so i don't care much about that, i also run a 140 tread wear tire so longevity isn't my thing. Hope this helps and good luck in your choice and what ever you decide, remember its your car.
