Default Staggered tires and wheels?

I would like to replace my stock bullit tires wheels, for some wider wheels and tires. Saw what AM offers, 255 front and 275 rear. Is this the best combo? I want a wide look. any fitment issues? 06 v6 pony car already lowered. I want to go with 18's as well. Also deep dish or not? thanks, any input will help. Z

Other than not being able to rotate front-to-rear, no problems. AM should ensure that both front and rear are equivalent O.D. I'm running 275's all around and if I could do it over it would be 255's front, 275's rear.

Although you may not feel the power loss, the larger wheels/tires increase rotational mass over the OE set.

ive got 255/50/17's (nitto 555) on my car with a 1" spacer on the rear. Easy way to get the staggered look. Put them on 1 year ago... works great and you can rotate your tires..

I run 255's on 18" rims on fronts, and 275's on 18" rims on the back. The wider front tire tends to rub under very sharp turning, but there's a steering limiter kit to help prevent that.
