    Has anyone heard of like getting say an 18 inch wheel in the rear and a 17 in the front? Maybe something like a 18x10 in the rear and a 17x8 in the front or something like that?

    The reason i ask this is because the wheels i'm considering i think look too small in the rear when 17 inch and too big in the front with an 18inch. So i'd like to get a 17 in the front and an 18 in the rear to fill out the wheel wells a bit more.

    I've heard of this done before i was just wondering what you guys think and also if youve ever seen or heard of it done on an SN95.

    I think it'd look cool and also add maybe a slight rake effect which i like.

    Sweet! Cragers are so cool looking on the old school muskle. :santa_grin:

    Do you think this would be ok for a 95GT? Like i mean i cant see why it would cause a problem but i've just never heard of it before on a SN95, shit on a mustang at all really.

    I'd like to do it, but i just wanna know if anyone has first of all ever heard of this on our year cars and if its some strange no-no of some sort?

    I dont see why it would be? :dunno:

    I say go with 18's all around, or 17's all around. I dont like the look, if you look at it with your "periphrial vision" it looks kinda funny looking.

    Oh yeah i remember that looking awesome.

    Really? Well i was thinking about the y2k cobra r's in black doing this with a really sick slammed drop, dont think thatd look good? :dunno:

  9. its very common...

    It looks great on the new edge SN95s...

    but IMPO... it just doesn't look too good on our SN95s...

    Instead of buying an 18' rear... put a meatier tire out back and lower it up front a tit bit more...

    This is what I plan on doing for the same reasons posted. I've always like the staggered/racey look and I will be doing it on my car. One thing to think about is that the abs light will come on but if that doesn't bother you, then you're ok.
