18x10 wheels

I'm considering getting staggered 18x9 and 18x10s in the rear for my 2001 Bullitt? Is this a good idea? Will it make that big a difference? My car is a daily driver. Thanks

Hey,

They will look really aggressive, and there are benefits to both set ups, however it really depends what you want most out of the car.

The staggered set up obviously looks awesome and should give you a little extra tread in the back to keep the rear planted. However, the down side is that you cannot rotate the tires at all, and with the skinnier tires up front you may experience some occasional under steer. For a daily driver not being able to rotate tires, you will cut down on the life of the tires for sure.

If you really like the look of the staggered set up and you are comfortable changing tires a little quicker than normal, the staggered set up will do you quite well. If you are looking to get the most life out of the tires, go with a highway tire on a standard set up.

I hope this helps, and if you have any questions, feel free to get in touch. Good luck!

-Dan

I apologize, maybe this is a regional term. By highway tire I mean something that is made to last a long time. Something like an extended life tire with a harder compound.

I hope this clarifies my suggestion.
