    Unhappy Can you get a Boyd coddington smoothe 1 in a 18

    I have a set of smoothe 17"s on my trans am which leaves my ta looking bad in the rear. If I can't find the wheel in a 18 what can I do other than lowing the car to make it look better in the rear? I have 17x 9.5's on the rear with 275-40zr-17 tires ,is there any tire I can put on the rear in a 17 that will take up some of the open space and not take away too much of that wide look I have on the rear.

    Even with the 18s, you may still have issues with tire/fender gap. You would need to drop to a 35 series sidewall profile to keep the same diameter as your current 17s. IMO, Fbodies with 18s and a drop look killer.
