    lets assume that i'm retarded......

    are 17 inch wheels going to cause any excessive tire wear to the insides of the tires? someone i know was saying something about camber and excessive tire wear and that i should just stick with 15's. what does everyone else think? am i going to need new tires every couple months or is he just full of shit?

    If the cars aligned and the camber angle isint all way out of wack you will be fine, and even if they have these "things" called camber kits.

    I put my old 17s from my old Jetta on my 89 civic and yes they rubbed with a 205/45/17 tire on it. I have 15s now and I love them, I say get 15s with a 205/50/15 tire and you will be happy.

    This is not swap related, and should be moved.


    go with 15's.

    yup its gonna get moved, but with 15s consider 195 50 15s becuase the 205's will be good for drag, but handeling will be effected by the sidewall flop, moreso if there 15x6.5s, also there cheaper
