When I see the 17" front 18" rear setup....I think it looks cool because it gives the car a good stance....but I always imagine the car with 18s up front, and I think it would look better.

So I say....18s all around.

quick question for you guys. when you do for example 17 front 18 rear, do you do the same profile on each tire, or do you use the same diameter tire and just run lower profile on the rear?

i would run a lower profile tire on the front to bring the front end a little bit lower, then mayb a little bit more profile on the rear. some people get the tires the same profile and it just doesnt look the same.

I think it works fine. Honestly, a lot of the time you can't even tell really. You have to really look to notice the differences.

The new egde with the flames looks awesome, BTW. But there's no way that the first pic is 17's in the rear and 15's in the front. The difference would be WAYYY bigger.

EDIT: I went ahead and did a photoshop comparison of the sizes, I copied the wheel from the rear and just moved it over, slightly overlapping the front wheel so that you could see a comparison of the size. looks like the car has 17's all around.

I agree there is no way the rims are those sizes, you can tell my 17 to 18 so you would be able to see it more with this car.
