volks are expensive lol, even 17's are killer $2400 for a set without tires.
They arent that much for 17's but they are pricey. You also take into account weight and quality. Before I ran the Advan RS' on my Evo I ran LE37's and loved them.

Stop being greedy and give to the needy.:rofl:
I would but..... our new president is already doing that for me against my will. :flame:

Ya gotta pay if ya gonna play...LoL


Back to the question. I'm riding on the factory 19"s til I wear them tires out & giving me time to get some of the other stuff done 1st, like coil overs ect..

But, when I do change wheels, they will be 18"x9" (front) & 18"x101/2" (rear), they will also be 3pc staggered w/a monsterous lip, & definately lightweight. Weight may take priorty over looks. I have no idea what brand or style yet, since I'm waiting to see what will become available 1st.

mmm.. my boyfriend tells me 19'' tires get pretty pricey..
and since i heard 18'' would do better performance wise (do they??)...
.... but i like the 19'' look.........
well it'll take a while for the tires to wear out anyways.
so i think i'll wait until AFTER i get the car. lols.

18" tires won't make a huge difference performance wise, although the smaller diameter wheel will normally weigh less, depending on what wheel you choose. But, all being equal, there will not be as much unsprung mass to turn, therefore giving a little more power to the ground. Same goes for lighter brakes, driveshaft, underdrive pulleys, etc...

Now far as tire performance in the sense of traction when accelerating, decelerating, & cornering, the brand, type, & rating will make the most difference...Tire selection is almost like a science in itself & I didn't major in it, just took a couple of courses, so to speak. But, I will be paying attention to what others on here will be selecting for race performance tires, since I haven't raced on a track in over a decade & am really out of it to be honest.
