Silver RTR or similar style

Hey just got my $125 eibach lowering springs installed from the overstock at rousch and really like the look, now I need the wheels and tires I really like the silver rtr but prefer the staggered look I know there are many similar style wheels any suggestions? I think 19" seem perfect but not opposed to 18 or 20 really like the fat rear tire look

If want fatties in the back go 18's. More tire options. I have the American muscle knock offs. A lot cheaper. And they come in silver.

Thats the look I'm after I'm thinking 8.5 in front and 10 out back not a daily driver so it dont have to be practical I've read the rtr are a compromise in offset to allow the same rims front and back just a hard decision

I believe 05-12 have the same offset, just watch out for brake clearance if you have Brembos.

Actual rtr rims are 9" all way around.

I have them installed, they are the exact same springs as the Eibach Pro-kit. The ride is very similar to stock.

I would imagine so ... IIRC wnt2gofst is running 305/45/18s with another inch of drop or so. Conjecture would lead me to believe this is a much less extreme scenario.

Thanks Bro, I think I am going to pull the trigger and buy them. They are dirt cheap. Could I use my stock shocks and struts? Is there anything else I need for the drop?

Stock shocks/struts are fine, camber bolts/plates and an adjustable panhard bar are recommended.
