    Im thinking of getting rims since its time for new tires but am not sure what the best size for performance, looks and lack of rubbing are. I would like to try and keep close to the same profile as the 17s for speedo reasons but don't want it to look off.

    Lets see some pics with the tire sizes so I can get an idea. Thanks

    I went the cheaper route in the front and the 295's in the rear. 255/40/18 and 295/35/18. I don't think it looks odd at all and the 255 fit the 9" rim just fine in the front. I've auto-xd it with no problems in the front. 25.7 is the stock tire diameter (245/45/17) and the 255's are 26 overall diameter and 265's are 25.3. Either will work, but the 295's in the rear are 26.1, so I just wanted to try and match them as close as possible in diameter. Here it is:
