    Got some oldschool looking E/T wheels that are a little more modernized size 17x9.5 and 16x8 unsure of the offset at the moment but can probably get it if we need it.

    My car is lowered about two inches on all four corners and I’d like a little hotrod rake in the rear to it!

    Preferably the widest tires that can be fit too.

    What tire sizes are you guys running with the staggered setups?

    I have staggered but it's 18 x 9.5 on rear, 17 x 8 on front. The 16" performance tire is disappearing from tire manufacturers offerings.

    Yeah I currently have 18s all the way around but I’d like to run these for a different look.
    What size are your front 17s?

    Is your ride lowered at all? I currently have the Hotchkis 2inch lower springs.

    Thank you! Looks good, it’s a nice subtle difference in size/stance. I like it.

    Now i need to figure out the right tire combo to run
