I just want to see how 18x9 in the fron with 17x10 in the back would look. I am thinking about going with the Eibach 1' lowering kit, with 18x9 deep dish Chrome Bullitts in the front w/ 17x10 Chrome Bullitts in the rear, and I want the most possible sidewall for traction. I just dont know if it will be obvious that the rims are different sizes...

Thanks in advance

I am a bit reluctant to spend the money without seeing it first, but do you think you could tell a 1 inch difference when they are about 5-6 feet away from each other?? Which center circle is bigger?

Well you can easily tell if a car is lowerd, even if its an inch, so i imagine seeing 2 differnt rims would be noticable. And larger wheels in front, IMO thatd look horrible for a rwd car, though the other way arond mught look good.

I dont think I explained my goal very well. Ultimately the rear will have a much larger circumfrence, I just figured if I was going to have worthless space in the front I would rather it be rim than tire. I want my next car to be a "show car" that can co to the track and whoop ***. I think ultimately if I cant find a pic with this setup than I will go with the benefit of the doubt and assume it will be noticeable and thats not what I want. Thanks for the input do far...

I just think it will always seem ...off, even if you cant exactly pin it down as what makes it look wierd.
