26" vs 28" front runners

I am looking at front runners for my 18x5" front wheels. Any inputs on doing 26" vs 28"? Please explain why. Thanks.

Why 18s?

I've already ordered them, so no going back. I didnt like how small the 17s looked though.

I run 17s front and back wrapped in 28s. No clearance issues.
If you run 26s front, you will need to run 26s in back to not freak out the ABS.
Many people run 26s on NA build for better acceleration.
I would prefer 29s on my car. I need the grip.

I have 28x10r15s going on the back. So that pretty much decides for me. If I plan on adding a power adder, either procharge or turbo in the future, it seems like the 28" is the best option. Correct?

That is the conventional wisdom.
