    Talking Upgrading 2005 STS

    I am planning on putting some new rims on my 2005 STS the brand that I will be going with is Halo and the style is going to be the Teasers. The question is there is to much wheel space in the rear quarters and I would like to try the setup like the ZO6 Vett`s have kinda . I would like to run 17x 7.5 in the front and 18 x8 in the back . Has everyone tryed this yet or did everyone just go with 18`s all the way around ?

    I am not a owner of the new STS yet because I am still undecided but I think a nice set of HRE's or iForge rims in 19" would be nice.

    The different rim sizes IN FRONT/BACK would require computer recalibration because the abs/traction control sensor will think the wheels are spinning at different speeds. But if you stick with the same size all around you can avoid that problem. Anyone try this, other opinions?
