Question what do you think of these?

do you think these wheels look good on my car? they are a cheaper make but they are selling for a VERY good price.
the rims im using now are 17 x 7.5 in front and 17x 8.5 in the rear.
these rims and 18 x 7.5 all around. will the smaller width in the rear make a difference, and what is the correct offset for my car?

the rims are chopped on.

I say up to the 18's... hyper silver matches your car better... looks good for aftermarkets.

I say stick with the OEM M68's or go with a staggered set of 18's. The 7.5 at the rear will look so small....
