Im going to be buying a set of Sport Edition kv5's very soon, along with DNA springs, struts, motor mounts and mount spacers... probably soon as I get my tax money.
Here's the dilemma.... Tire Rack has 17's for $128/wheel. A set of 17's is $512
18's are 189 a wheel driving a set up to over $730
Offset on the 17's is 40
Offset on the 18's is 45
What Im wondering is.. is the extra inch worth another 300+ dollars, or do you think 17's and a drop would be good? I've heard going from 16 to 17 is a waste of time, I never bought wheels so Im not sure if the difference will even be noticable.
The offset on the 17's is lower so they might even look better being farther out
18's are available with chrome, not sure if I want chrome or not...
Also, bolt pattern on the 17's is 5x115 where the 18's are 5x114... I know I read that both will work on our vehicles, is that 100% true, nobody's had trouble running the 5x114?
Tell me what you guys think about it.
