    Wider?

    So looking at new rims...im wondering
    what are the pros/cons for 18x10.5s or 18x11s in the back?
    or should i stick with 17s?
    or should i keep 9.5s all around?
    this is a daily driver and probably will be for the next 2 or 3 years

    18's be given u that bling bling son. All that street cred and shit.
    Really not stating what you want out of it. A kumho ecsta xs 275 will out handle a nexen/sumitomo 315.

    The main con of 18s, the price in tires goes up significantly from 17s to 18s.

    true.
    but for the past months ive been looking aorund at rims.
    If i went 18s...
    i love CCW but they are pricey...
    i also find myself liking the C5 Z06 and C6 Z06 reps for OEWheels (but the chrome scares me)

    if i kept 17s...
    i would get either black C4s with the machined lips like Nymphadoria's (i think is his name) or TTIIs like Lou's
