performance
How much would it hurt me performance wise if i was to get 18s instead of 17s? I'm looking at the nakayama spiders, and i want to know if anyone there could tell me what it would do to my speed and traction, right now i just have the stock 15 alloys. Any ideas on how much more 18s would weigh compared to stock? Any info would help me a lot, thanks.

well one thing for sure you would have worse acceleration because of the larger diameter. Better top end though. as far as wieght difference, it depends on specific wheel.

Yeah, i'm wondering about the weight, i didn't know about the top end though, thanks for that info, and i'm gonna try to find the weight of each, and see if i would really gain much weight.

top of my head dunno if this is accurate
15"-16" use more for performance, if your into racing
17" definetly in between, good for show and go
18"-19" more for show, a bit heavier-will surely slow down acceleration but as mentioned higher top end

its a give and take when it comes to rim sizes thumbsup

you shouldnt worry about it.

btw, those wheels are sick. i dunno how much they weigh, but 5zigen makes a model called the mk6 which is identical. it might be lighter, but i dunno.
