    Staggered Diameter Wheels!

    So what is the concensus on putting 18" wheels in the front and 20"s in the rear?

    I'm not opposed to it, but wouldn't it affect the ABS?

    Yeah It would if you dont run the exact same height of tire in the 20 as you do the 18. I like staggered 9 front 10.5 rear but on a lowered sc this might be asking for trouble lol.

    Correct the overall diameter of the tire matching front to back.

    The rear will be a low profile tire. Although I see guys at the track with 28" rear tires and not worry about ABS too much.
