Does anyone have pics of staggered 16" front and 17" rear wheels on a 1st or 2nd gen? Not sure how this would look but I know I'd get a thicker sidewall than with 17's up front. I'm thinking TT2's
Thanks

Rears are 17x8 with 255 50 17, fronts are 16 x 7 with 225 50 16. Front is a chassisworks clip, rear is mini tubbed with a TCI 4 link. I did it for the same reason you have, I wanted a little more sidewall up front.

I think the one inch staggered difference looks best on old cars. Reason I think so is because it does exactly how you want. It looks like the same diameter wheel in front and back and you have the same sidewall thickness and more of it. IMO it looks great and does NOT give you that 18" to 20" looking difference. I would say run with it if it were me but that is just my oppinion, it's all up to you. :yes:
