    I hate to ask this... but could people post some costs? I'm trying to pic a combo, and cost is always a concern. BTW, here is a excel I put together going over different costs for sizes that were listed here. FR/RR is for which rim it would fit, the rating is just a personal number... and the vendors I'm looking at were discount online and tirerack.

    I bought these at www.cruisinchrome.com - great customer service and very helpful. I originally ordered 2- 18x8.5's and 2-18x10's The 18x10 wheels he sent me didn't have the right offset. He paid the shipping both ways to get them right. I will buy my next set of wheels from them again!!! Call the 909-6289763 (Cali number) and ask for Bill -- Tell him Larry from Denver sent you. You will not be disappointed

    Now 2 quick questions:

    What is the widest tire I can use on this rim? I'm guessing 295 but not sure.

    And I have a set of (2) 17" 96-97 Cobra rims. I am wanting to slap on some Mickey Thompson ET streets size 275/40-17s but I am not sure if the actual rim will work on my car. Will that rim and tire combo fit?
