Need your help/opinion

I'm looking at two different wheels. I need your opinion. 17x9/10.5 03 cobra styles black with chrome lip. Or 18x9/10 95 cobra R's black with chrome lip. I would like to have 18 but would also like to have 10.5 rear wheels and also like the 03 styles better. Let me know everyone.

Tires are cheaper for the 17s also.

It's free and it still looks good. That way you dont have to waste money on springs o=and cc plates or camber bolts. Just cut a coil off and get cc plates or bolts. We cut my cousins and its lower than mine and looks good

From where the pigtail ends juat mark on the next coil. So you're cutting exactly one coil.

That's why cutting them is a good idea. Cuz it's free! Lol. I'm probably not gonna cut mine till I get wheels and tries so I can't make sure the back tired don't run or anything.
