17 front 18 rear

I think a staggered setup with 17s in the front and 18s in the rear would look pretty good on a MN12. I was thinking of going with the Bullitt style wheels, 17x8 in front, 18x9 in the rear.

Has anyone else done this?

I know that OKCBird has/had this setup on his car. Not sure if there are good pictures of it around. Maybe he'll chime in and post some.

Unless Josh recently changed, he's got 18" Y2K Cobra Rs on his bird.

I have that exact set up, same wheels, same widths. Looks great. Search in the picture/vids forum to see it. I don't post there much so do a search of that forum with my username and you will find it easily.

Sorry it took me so long to reply, just graduated and working on moving and stuff so I haven't had a lot of time to thoroughly check the boards.

If you give me another couple weeks I will get some more pictures from some different angles scanned.
