10.5" all around? Opinions welcome

So I went wheel shopping today with my cousin, they threw the idea at me of having all my four wheels 10.5" instead of having the front 9" and the back 10.5" so it shows more concavity.

Any negative outcome that this might cause?

I'm running 10.5 all the way around. Should have my wheels next week. Picking up the tires on Monday. Will give a review once the car is back together in running.

It can be done, certain coil overs make it easier.

^ how low did you go if you dont mind me asking? I was going to get coilovers but my cousins saying it should much better and cheaper if I just get lowering springs.


btw just ordered the wheels should be here by mid February, issue is tires now.
this is the specs they recommended

265 x 35 x 22 all around. wheels are 10.5 all around 38" offset in the back 30" in the front. dont know if its exactly like I typed it might be switched around. but thats what it is.

Opinions? for those who have done the 10.5" all around care to share your tires recommendation and etc. would appreciate it thanks.

Wow, I didn't know you meant 22x10.5 all the way around, I would not recommend that to anyone.

='[ why is that? the wheel folks said it's possible only problem is the front tires might need to put spacers and such.

I know you are just going for the concave look, but most people go with a wide square set up for handling (20x10 all around, 19x10.5 all around, 18x10 all around, ect). If you notice a trend they are stock diameter or smaller and usually very light weight. 22's are the opposite. Larger diameter and heavier, two things that are not good for handling.
Also, on the note of just using lowering springs instead of coil overs, that would make the front wheels stick out.

shit... thats one thing im worried about. the handling, I unfortunately have to go to the interstate twice a week to go to the university, plus honestly I'm not the best driver out there. and yeah I want that concave look, plus that wide ass perspective in the rear, if I could I would've gone 11.5" in the back but it wasn't available.
