Wheels & Tires

I've been debating upgrading my stock (GT Premium) 18" wheels & tires. Well two things happened today that may push me closer to the edge. I picked up what looks like a 2" knife blade in my right rear. Tire is ruined and cannot be repaired per tire store (have dealt with & trust these guys). After I got home , in my mailbox I find a Bonus check from my previous employer. Is this like the planets lining up or what???
I Really like the look of the Ford GT style wheels offered by LMR & also the GT4 models from AM. I know 4 the same size makes more sense as far as rotation etc... but I also like the staggered look, going one inch wider (10s) for the rear. My car is a DD, M-82 with 3.55s. I live in the Phoenix area and therefore snow or rain isn't really much of an issue. I do not race or track the car & have no intention of lowering it, so I'm looking more at wear/life, than soft & sticky. Should I forego the wheel tire packages & just order the wheels & go with my local tire store to pick up a road hazzard guarantee on their tires? Suggestions please, but let's keep it friendly. Thanks guys

Thanks for the replies puddy & nhcowboy.... I'm pretty much decided on wheel style, just not sure if staggered is the way to go & also what might be a good choice for tires with respect to durability. Maybe I'm being too practical. ha ha

you could always do wheel spacers so you still get that backend stick out look but at the same time be able to rotate your wheels.

Probably a good all season tire? I think a lot of people like the pilot sport from michelin? Little pricy tho. I am getting Mickey Thompson tires myself.

I agree on the Michelins. They will even honor half thread life warranty on staggered tires.
