17s in front 18s out back

didnt want to hijack the other staggered thread. i know i want staggered wheels, but heres the thing. im going tomorrow to get some wheels off craigslist. they are torque thrust 2s 17s in front and 18s for the rear with bfg gforce tires 3000 miles on them. i cant find pics of any and wondering if there is a reason why. either im not searching for the right phrase or people dont do it?

When most people refer to staggered wheels they mean something like 17x9 in front and 17x10.5 in the back. This allows them to put a wider tire on the rear

Looks nice! I wish you had a pic from the side (perfectly straight pic) to see the stance and difference of the rims. What size tires?

Re: 17s in front 18s out back

Same here. I love it too. Mind you the gap is an inch or so higher at the front but steering and handling is awesome, plus it allows me to have wider tires up front; 255/40/ZR17 with 285/35/ZR18 in the rear. What I do know and experienced is the in a pinch, I will have max traction at high speeds, and in turning. My stang handles like a compact on tight turns etc. I attribute it to the smaller front wheels, and a lower front end.

Your wheels look awesome. My rear are 285/30/18, a bit lower profile. My car used to be lower with about 3 inches clearance from any road surface. My undercarriage tells the story then I raised it up with eibach pro springs for about 1 inch. I think I'll drop it in the summer though. that means pebble dodging.
