has nayone put 18x8s in the front and 18x9s in the rear, i just want to give it that aggressive road race look, and yes i know a wider tire in hte rear wont help my holeshot, so dont flame my ?. Or if 17x8 and 17x9 will fit , or just an 8 1/2 inch wheel will fit, i just dont want the tires to stick out like the rodriguiez cars around here, im not a gangster with chrome trim on my fenders, let me know>>>

staggerred offset is the sh*t.. you should do it.. maybe swift21 has rims w/ different widths because the lip looks deeper in the back than in the front

its just for looks though. Its more functional for RWD cars since it puts more patch on the ground where it counts.

I just put some 18x8 1/2 in rims on my car, they ride a lot better than my 17's, but sharp turns in the front barely rubs the plastic liner in the front, but i also have a huge tire, im running
235/40/18. these tires are wide as hell, but they are sweet, So basicly any 18in rim will fit, just get anyware from a 34 - 36 offset and you will be fine, i recomend getting a 215/40/18, that wpont rub.
