This months Car and Driver has an article on the Jaguar 830 HP F1 car and the specs say F 12.0 x 13.0 inch R 13.4 x 13.0 inch.

You are right about those factors...I did mention the drag factor. However the 18"s would have 235/40 all around rather than OEM 225/45 and 245/40 which might compensate for the front increase size.

And actually, Indycars have 15 inch wheels- I have one in my living room as a coffee table. Besides, I used to chill and inspect my dad's car in his pit when he was on the CART circuit =)
