I think im trading my wheels...

for 17" deep dish black bullitts. I dont like how expensive the tires are for the 18s and I found a guy locally thatll trade me the straight up, plus he'll give me some cash for some 17"ers. Would you guys do it? The tires thatll be on the 17s are 315/35/17s on the rear which will be great for traction. Not to mention itll be a lot lighter. Im kind of excited about it, maybe with the extra cash Ill get myself some springs

Re: I think im trading my wheels...

looks better with the 18's, but it would look better with 17's and springs, so its a good tradeoff. hope you have some stiff suspension because my cobra doesnt and i cant even get by a speedbump without scraping

Re: I think im trading my wheels...

im kinda used to driving a low car. my v6 was really low, and even lower since all the clamps on my exhuast had the bolts facing downward, so i know all about scraping lol. Ill more than likely get H&R supersports when I get the springs... then ill need some CC plates, and then after that Ill do shocks/struts

Re: I think im trading my wheels...

tires for 18 inch rims are a good bit more... look into those first. I would get yokahoma avs es 100s if they come in that size. For the backs... to do it right... you are looking at 600 bucks alone

Read again tire nazi. Ill be trading my 18" rims for his 17" rims that already have 315s on the rear.

I realize how much the 18" tires are, thats why I want 17s again.. that way I can get the right size and not pay 200+ bucks a tire.
