go with 18x10 try to stay with at least 9" or wider wheel... it will make the tire look better....

I disagree on the last part. I would go polished over chrome. Chrome peels over time and most chrome wheels look cheap

Gives you more tire choices if you ever want to change brand and/or size.

Disagree right back at ya. Rather have chrome because easy to clean and don't have to spend a weekend polishing them. Remember there are other wheel company's out there besides WELD that make chrome wheels.
