Default Wheel Thoughts: Kazera KZ-A on my SC300

I'm now finally at a point where I can consider buying wheels to replace those stocks that are on right now. I have been looking all over the web considering many differnet options. My latest thought are the Kazera KZ-A's:



These are offered in 18x8.5 and 18x9.5.
Option A: 18x8.5 all around
Option B: 18x8.5 front 18x9.5 rear
Option C: look at something else

What do you guys think? Pros? Cons?

If you think this is a good option, feel free to chime in about tire options... I'm not sure what I'm going with there yet. If I were to go this route I would probably put a 235/40 on the fronts, no idea what to put on the rear. I thought I'd get a few idea from the experts before I went and made a purchase.

First off, always go staggered IMO.

I like those rims. Kinda remind me of Volks. I say go with maybe a 35 aspect ratio with maybe some 265s on the back. Fat rear rubber rules.

why not go 245 for the front and 275 for the rear?

Default Performance

Michelin PS2 would be the best choice, for the ultimate level of performance in a street tire. However, they are more expensive then the Fuzions.

I have 245's all around on 18x8.5" rims.. in a lil while, i'm gonna sell these and get some wider rims in the back with sum wider rubbers on them. 245's just aren't wide enough.. they look real good when i'm sittin next to a civic or something.. but sittin alone.. they don't look as wide as i wanted them.. as for performance.. i couldn't really tell the difference between these and the stock 215's.. so i hope there is when i throw on some 275's on the rear..
