momo corse wheels

So I have a chance to grab some momo corse wheels 18x7.5 for $200. Awesome looking wheels and decent for the price. Right now I have the 18's on my GT but looking for something other than stock. These have a 6 inch backspacing not sure what stock is either. But my main question is what size tire is best with these wheels? I have searched but haven't seen anything recent. What also is the max width you guys would go with tires and still be in that safe region?

A 7.5 inch wide wheel is a little narrow.

I'm just guessing you have 8 inch wide wheels now, so you would be downgrading from a handling standpoint.

Yes you are right, thats why I didn't just get them and not like them or downgrade. I figured since I was going to a narrower wheel I would be doing more harm then good from a performance/handling stand point. I won't lose sleep over it if I do not get them haha.

Are you lowered yet? Dropping the stance really changes the look also. Not to mention the handling benefits.

I haven't gotten to lowering it yet, I plan to within the next few weeks or so. I am already in the midst of fabricating adjustable lower control arms for it.

I do like that! It's different. But I pretty dead set on doing them completely black. I have always been intrigued to black rims lol.
