Plus if you plan on autoxing then the 17"s will be lighter unless you spned bucks on a lightweight set. I love the 18"s Joey has but at $1000 a set no thanks. For that cash outlay with tires I could've bought an exhaust and an intake along with my set.

It's the wheel gap that bothers me right now but these wheels in 18"s were so tempting but our roads suck (dirt drives show up time to time too) around here and with my wife as the primary driver I don't have to worry so much about her tagging a curb.
