Wheel sizes

I was wondering I have 18s on my car is it worth buyin 19 staggered rims? Or should I just keep the the 18 and get wheel spacers? To make it more flush with the body?

its not the diameter of the rims that make the wheels flush with your car. its the offset of the rims. Im guessing you have the stock 18's. If your just worried about look then spacers should work. However, i have herd some pretty bad war stories about people using spacers on powerful cars....

If you are talking about getting rid of the wheel gap. then lowering springs are what you want.

I would just get staggered wheels. 18×8 fronts and 18×10 rear should get you what your looking for.

I think this would be better suited in the wheels and tires section.... I moved it there.

Good thing you listed what year your car is, otherwise we'd have no clue what size wheel/tire to recommend...

Just because I give you advice, doesn't mean I know more than you. Its just means I've done more stupid ****.
