well i was going to get 17inch rims for my car today off ebay, but they dont have the 17version but they have the 18 version for like 70$ more...i think it sounds good...but can a sentra withhold 18's? also, are the set of 4 tires about the same price as the set of 4 tires for the 17inch version??

they're gonna slow you down a LOT, and they're huge. even with a drop you'll look like the car rides high.

how do they slow you down? if the overall diameter of the wheel-tire is the same? i think that 18's look sick...im not interestered in racing or whatnot times on my car (how fast it is), i want show and im a daily commuter to school.....but, my parents wont allow me to drop my car...so iono...i want the 17's, but the 18's are just so ever tempting

how can the overall diameter be the same if one is 17" and one is 18" ?

not to mention, it appears that you don't have any suspension upgrades.. 18's are going to destroy your stock suspension quickly.

You can't put 17" tires on 18" wheels


okayy then...... you seem to have the answers and doesn't sound like you want advice... good luck

please take one hint of advice... research it before buying...

what im trying to say, is it a good idea to get 18inch rims? consider a show factor, and daily driving factor (although the roads around here arent that bad)

i guess youre right...but see i wanted the 17inch ADR rims (s-07r) off ebay, and now they dont sell them anymore, [as of today], and instead they have the 18inch ADR S-07R....i want the particular model, and its relatively cheap , but i really want the 17's....i was just seein the 18's as an alternative =/

uh, 18" wheels WEIGH A LOT!

especially the cheap pieces of crap you're prolly looking at, plus the weight of 18" tires.

18 in tires are usually a loy more expensive then 17's... and the 17 inchers are already really low profile, you would be riding on rubber bands with 18's if you wanted to keep the same profile... though i will admit it would look good, nut will also affect performance... the added weight will affect your steering and handling, as well as put unknown stress on your suspension setup... nut the choice is yours... if you aren't a go fast guy, and you are thinking about suspension upgrades in the future go for it and good luck... but price tires first...
