: i'm thinking about buying a set of 18's for my '97 four door. however, i was told that the car's handling characteristics could be upset if the wheels are not staggered -- 7.5 in the front and 8.5 in the rear -- like the factory set. is this true? if i went with 18'' bbs or acs that are 8' wide all around, would i be ok? thanks.

from what I know, having staggered wheels make the car handle worse. I would go 8 all around
