I got 17 x 8's for the front, and 17 x 10.5 in the rear. I forget what the guy at Big-o's is going to put in the front, but he said he was going to put 305's or 315's in the rear. So my question is, should i lower the front, or raise the rear. Im trying to get that drag racer kind of look. And yes, i love wide wheels. Oh yeah, the rims are dark grey bullits, incase you were wondering.

And yes, i know the consequences of having a staggered set. But this holiday season is coming up, and afterwards i'll have more money than i can spend (Not to brag or anything). So i'll just buy some sets of tires and Nx.

for the front you need a 245/45/17 for the rear you need a 315/35-17 or 335/35-17

Cutting coils is not good on your springs if you want to get the raised look you should go with an air ride suspension and then you can change it anytime you like. But if you keep the rear raised and you do drag race it you will have some wind drag.

ford c springs have a dead coil in the rear which can be cut without a problem.

the c springs are designed for pre 94 cars and 94+ cars so if you put em on a fox body you dont need to cut the dead coil, for 94+ you do to get an even drop
