    Wheel Help! 17" Rear and 16" Front"

    I am buying some wheels for my car, I currently have 16" wheels and I am buying 17", I already have two tires for the 17"s or I would get 18"s. Should I get 17"s all around or can I run 17"s in the rear and 16"s in the front. I already have two 16" tires so getting 16"s in the front would save me a few hundred (and im in college and the Z isnt my DD so money is limited). I just want to know if it will look goofy, or cause handling problems. Thanks!

    Here is the wheels I was looking at:

    if the overall tire/wheel diameter and circumference difference from front to rear is too far off the ABS and Traction control lights will come one and won't work. Keep that in mind when running different wheels/tires on the front and back

    Cutlass is correct, however I dont remember/know the exact amount they have to be off for the lights to trip.

    i would just wait. You got 16s now and if you buy another set with 16s it'll look funny IMO. I think TAs/Camaros need at least 17" tires. Plus if you go 16/17e.s then if you want bigger you'll need new wheels and tires again.
