I would also like to know about having 18's all around. Im going to buy some c6 rims very soon and I think I will do 18's all around. Do the 18 fits nicely with no rubbing?

HLY SHFT, those are MUCH better pictures! However, I'm really thinking I'm still going to go 19's all the way around. However, it looks like I may have to buy a whole 2nd set to get a total of 4 19x10's, so I'd then have to sell the 4 18x8.5's in silver.

dBrown, from what I can tell about going with 18x8.5's all the way around, it is very possible, however the rear's only need a 3/4" spacer. Unfortunately, I can' find adapters in 3/4", so you'd either have to go with a 1" adapter to make the rear 18's fit, or go with a 5/8" or 3/4" adapter plate and longer studs to make the rears fit.

Tire sizes with the 18x8.5's are pretty much 2 choices: 245/40/18 are the stock diameter (25.7") or you can go a little wider with a 255/35/18, but they're only a 25" diameter which will throw your speedo off my 3 MPH at 60 MPH if you don't change the computer.

Since there are no factory 17" C06 wheels, you would have to tell us the width and offset (or backspace) of the aftermarket 17" C06 replica wheels you are asking about. That info is needed to determine if you need spacers or not.

What size tires are you running in the rear? Brand?

I have some 19" Foose rims and I need some new tires, just wondering what you are running...thanks!

^ I'm running 275/30/19 on the rears with 9.5 rims.
They are "General Exclaim UHP" tires

Wow, 30 series? That's what I had on my Supra, I couldn't stand those bastards. How come you didn't do the 275/35/19 at least? I know Nitto does the 555, although, I guess those would be a little narrow.. still, on a 9.5 I think it'd be okay. My 275s were on a 10.5.... big no-no.

How do the rear wheels look in person? Do they stick out or look odd in the wheel well?

I have alot of fender gap on the rear (Sunken battleship) I'm thinking of getting 1' spacers to wide them out alittle. If i would have known this from before, i would NOT have gone with C6 rims.

Safety Note: Be careful with the eBay spacers. I bought a pair about a year ago and 3 of the 10 studs snapped off on me after changing the wheels only twice. Fortunately, they snapped while I was mounting the tire, and not while driving! These spacers are listed with a grade 8 stud. I replaced all the studs with grade 10s from NAPA and have not had any problems since.

I don't think there actually IS a "Grade 10" bolt. I may be wrong, but I'm pretty sure SAE bolts and studs are only rated from 1 through 8.

Unless you have aftermarket axles (which typically switch to a 1/2"-20 lug size, in Grade 8), it's likely a metric M12x1.5 stud that snapped. If so, that would be a Class 8.8 stud (about equiv to a Grade 5 in SAE ratings). A 9.8 might have sufficed, but a Class 10.9 metric stud is plenty (no need for a Class 12.9... more maintenance).
