Need Opinions

So it's almost time to purchase my fr500s, but I'm really stuck on which package to buy. I can get the 17in with the 9in wide front tire and 10.5in rear tire or the 18in wheel with 9in front tire and 10in rear tire. What's the benefits, pros, cons, and which would give my car the best stance?

Go with 18's, they fill in the gap better. 17' tires will be not as pricey. 17's to me look a little small

18's definitely look better. Downside is you have to sell a kid to afford decent tires.

Just look at the price diff in the future. I spend $1300-1500 on tires when one of the cars need it.

That's on the cheap end. The rears on my cobra were $400 each.
