Which wheels?

Which wheels should I get? Keep my cobra r 95 styles and just add 17x10.5 to the rear? Or 18" staggered saleens? Both are black btw.

Saleens are sick I would do that but would be cheaper to just get the two 10.5 cobra r's

It depends on if you don't mind the harsher ride and added weight of the 18's. I read this article where they tested the performance affects of bigger rims while keeping the tires all the same diameter and width. By size 18 the acceleration drop considerably. They also tested lateral stability and ride quality. I think if you're going for looks the saleens would be sick but it you wanna have wheels that compliment all the hard work and performance mods you do I would stay with 17's
