Whos running 18" ? do they affect the drivabillity of the car in anyway ?
I've got 18''s on mine mate and I've not noticed any change really, only thing I'd say and it's not really that noticeable is that the ride is slightly harsher.
18's look good though
18" =huge brakes :lol: :wink:
18's fill the arches better but if your running on 40 profile they will make your teeth chatter!! :twisted:
I'm running 18's. As above i've changed tyre profile to something thicker and it makes a the ride comfier.
Personally if I started track-daying I would go to 17's with a thicker profile tyre.
18's look better imo but obviously more expensive.
I guess the affect of bigger wheels also depends on the quality and lightness of the alloys too. I.e. Rotating mass.
Legacy spec.B, 3.0R and 2.0GT, which you liked - is designed to run on 18"s - but with 215/45 tyres - so a nice balance in looks and ride comfort - I didn't know this when I bought my (lovely :mrgreen: ) Blitzen wheels (17") and so have ended up with 225/50 17 tyres to get back to the original rolling radius :lol:
I run 18s on my car........ however some VERY quick guys on the sprints insist the 17's are better? horses for courses :?
I liked it as my car was at cotcomp having the coilovers set up ! I have a impreza sti
running 17 had 18 on a classic years ago and running through forests hurt like hell i hav had 15, 16, 17 and 18 and agree 18 look the best.
17's best on a classic 18's on a Newage in my experience! :wink: But each too there own and all that :lol:
im on 18's with 45 profile, ride is ok. originally had 35's on and i thought my teeth were going to fall out!!
18s x40s little bit harsher ride
I agree with Lee, 18"s for show and 17"s for go
