Wheels?

What's the biggest size wheels we can use on our cars? 18"? I'm might be getting these rims/wheels from a neighbor real cheap and was wondering what size is our max and min, I'll post pics as soon as I can, maybe tommorow.

If I put 18"'s how much can I drop the car? What size is good for racing?

By the way, the tires/rims are from a mustang she used to have, they just don't fit her new car.

you need to get your mind right. If you want to race you want small wide tires, as in 15-16s not large ones. When you throw 18s on you're slowing yourself down.
As far as the drop: With 18s the drop depends on what kit you have. For example 18's with an R2 or Blitz kit doesn't have a lot of space to drop. But a safe drop would be 1.5" or less. Anymore you run the risk of bottoming out.
