Default Advan RS vs RZ

Anyone have a preference?

I am seriously considering the 17s for weight/cost, but I'd like to see the 18s to compare. Anyone have any info, pictures, comments?

don't forget about how much you're paying for 17" tires vs 18" tires...

i can tell you first hand for a set of fairly nice 18" tires, i paid 900+ for something like RE01R or Z1 star specs it's over a grand. 17's are much much cheaper. i'm running 255/35/18 or 265/35/18 which are comparable in price. for the same 17 inch tire you'd save 250-400 per set of tires. but for what it's worth i love 18's for me they look much better even if you don't run an aggressive offset, i feel like with 17's a lower offset is the only way they look OK to me. As far as Advans go i used to have 18x8.5 RGII's and too many people had them, the RS's are becoming that way especially with the agressive G-Forces coming out which look pretty darn close to the RS. I'd go with the RZ as it's a new wheel and no knock offs of it are made.....yet. Also, i'm assuming money and patience is abundant as advans are expensive about 600 a wheel for 18's and they take forever to get, think along the lines of about 4 months
