18s or 20s? staggered or no?

So im selling my stock rims and getting new black deep dish bullitt rims. Im deciding between 18s and 20s. 18s will be about $300-375 cheaper . 20s will be a bit more expensive but will look nice. The only con to the 20s is its extra weight and that would be about 130lbs extra weight which would cut into my gas mileage. What do y'all think?

I'd say get 20s anyway and then get the springs when you've got the cash.

18's. I'm personally not a fan of 20's. 18's or 19's are the way to go. The money you save on 18's can get you those springs

Re: 18s or 20s? staggered or no?

Idk if I will even lower it cause I live in Kansas and the roads are S**T! pot holes everywhere it sucks =(. Anyways, I was talking to my friend and he said it would look sick if i got non deep dish in the front (18x9) and deep dish (18x10) in the back. What do you all think about that?

The roads cant be worse then nyc.. And I don't have problems. You don't have to go too low. About an 1" would be good. That setup would look great though!!

Like your friend opinion. With 18s You will also have more rubber between your wheels. Better coverage for pot holes and bad road. I personally have 20s but 18s are nice too

Go with the 18's because my dad had an06 GT with 20's. It looked great but it had to be lowered a little and if it isn't the perfect rim you could look like a fool. I can't remember what brand they were, maybe street tuning or something like that.

Bad news. I can't do the non deep dish 18x9s front and 18x10 deep dish in the back cause AM doesn't sell 18x9 non deep and that's only who I will buy from. Do you think 18x9 front and 18x10 rear both staggered would look good?

I would say staggered deep dish 18s with a half inch wider in the back. I dont like it when it looks like people have a rubber band for tires plus 18s are probably lighter

+1. Latemodelrestoration.com sells a 18x9/10 wheel and tire kit that has the 19x9s no deep dish and the 18x10 deep dished. (I'm sure this is what he is talking about)

Love my 18s. I think 20s look like too little tire. I hear it hard to find tires to fit 19" rims?

Haha go with the 18's if you wanna save money. For a good set of rubber "I have Pirelli p zeros" I spent over $2000. And that was for a set 19's staggered.

IF you don't track it, it won't matter. Well I guess if your going for looks it might be cool.
