I just ordered some Torq Thrusts in 17 x 8 with a 5"BS for the front and 17 x 9.5 with a 5.5 inch BS and now I'm wondering if I should have gone with 18's instead. Any thoughts? I'm also trying to decide between Toyo Proxis T1-S in a 245 40 17 for the front and a 275 40 17 for the rear, or Goodyear F1 245 45 17 front and 275 40 17 for the rear. Will this combo work? My Camaro is a 69 convertable with a a Hotckis suspension 1.5" lower in the front and 2" in the rear. It has all new Poly body bushings, Global West subframe connectors.
Thanks for the Help,

I have centerlines with the exact same dimensions except they are 18's. Now I am about to order some Torq Thrusts also, and I am considering 17 or 18's. 17's are much more common, but the 18's look like they may be too tall. So, I'm still undecided.
