18x9 Front 19x10 Rear?

I have a Black 2012 V6, I just dropped it 1.4" all around on stock 17's. I want to move up in wheel size and think I'm going with the AMR charcoal wheels from AmericanMuscle. I was debating between 18's and 19's for a while, and had pretty much decided on 18's, but I'm a bit worried about wheel gap in the rear. That was my main reason for lowering it almost 1 1/2 inches, and I've heard that running a 275/40/18 in the rear increases the gap because of the shorter tire.

I guess my question is if there would be any problems, or would it just be dumb to run 18x9's in the front and 19x10's on the rear of a v6? Tires would probably end up being 255/45/18's and 275/40/19. Thoughts? Opinions? Pictures?

I didn't see a post like this in the search, but admittedly I didn't look too hard. Sorry if I'm re-asking something.

I think the lowering plus those wheels would look great. I say do it.

That's a good question. At the end of the day it's going to come down to personal taste. We have customers order setups like this all the time and having a size like this wouldn't affect performance. I would personally shoot for a Staggered 18x9/18x10 Charcoal AMR kit because when it comes time to swap the rears off the 19's the tires would be somewhat more expense than the 18's.

Here's a shot of the Charcoal AMR's on a v6 to give you an idea of what they would look like.



Let me know if you have any questions, I'm always here to help out!

19's definitely look a lot better on the newer body styles if you ask me. The only thing I would watch out for, would be the difference in tire height and revs per mile. Too big of a difference between the front and back and you could inadvertently trip your traction control, whenever traction control is on of course.

That's an interesting idea about the traction control. I never thought about that. I wouldn't think the difference be significant enough to trigger traction control but I don't know.

I was wondering the same except with 18s up front and 20s out back(because of the wheel I want has a 5.5 inch lip in the back for a
20 and a 5 inch lip on the 18 if it were to go on the back) and the 18s have a 3.25 lip on the front wheel and the 20s have a 4.25 lip. So I'd rather have a smaller dish up front and a huge one in the back is my reasoning for wanting the 18/20 setup.
